George RR Martin, the man responsible for the books upon which the TV fantasy drama 'Game Of Thrones' is based, is a tireless author. This doesn't mean he hasn't got any tires, it means that he rarely puts his pencil and notepad down.
Martin takes his pencil and notepad with him wherever he goes, and whatever he is doing, so that, if he gets a good idea whilst he is in, say, the supermarket, at the bank, having his breakfast, on a bus, on the toilet, or in an eerie medieval forest environment, he can write it down, and won't forget. The mark of a good writer. This is why he's written so many books.
Martin, it was, who wrote the original 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' in 1996, followed by 'A Clash of Kings' (1999), 'A Storm of Swords' (2000), 'A Feast for Crows' (2005) and 'A Dance with Dragons' (2011). Now he has written three more books, 'A Goblet of Boredom' (2018), 'A Eyeful of Oral' (2018), and his latest epic, 'A Right Load Of Old Shite' (2019).
He is currently writing two more books - one with each hand - cleverly entitled 'A Song Of Fire And Ice', and 'A Stiff Cock In Winterfell', the latter on an agricultural theme.
One person who is in a good position to comment on Martin's dedication to his trade, is his neighbor, Betty Lannister. She gushed:
"He's always got his pencil and notepad with him. I don't know where he gets his inspiration from! He's legendary."
And drinking buddy, Ned Targaryen, said:
"He's got a great imagination, so creative, and I'm so dumb."
