"George RR Martin is not your bitch," is the best quote from this article. That and the finger he gives to fans.
I dunno about you guys, but I'm waiting patiently.

I am Super Ben. I like to fly around the world for work and for fun. I nerd and geek out 24/7 via social media. Come follow along via Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Google+ before I get hand cancer from mobile phone overuse. I might be a kid pretending to be an adult.
Here's the +Neil Gaiman blog post that spawned the "George RR Martin is not your bitch" saying:
I agree with Mr. Gaiman, and like yourself, I am going to patiently wait for the next book. 🙂
Good for GRRM. Personally, I don't care what he is doing with his time related to writing a book that I don't have time to read this (or likely next) calendar year.
My concern is: GRRM, you are fat. That isn't healthy. Please step away from the typewriter/computer/paper and take care of yourself. That is your only reasonability, everything else is optional.
He only sits at his computer to write. He writes in DOS on a computer that isn't connected to the internet. But he is doing a lot of traveling to be seen at conventions and whatnot.
I'm glad that projects of his like working on the show as an executive producer and keeping it true to its roots is keeping him from writing. I'm sure HBO wanted to skew the show certain way like they did with Sookie Stackhouse novels vs. True Blood.
I'm glad he his standing up for himself, but if I were to speak to anyone like that I'd get tossed on my head.
Remember to placate the had that feeds you, not bite it.
+Russell Matheson Nah, I think when the hand that asks (and pays) turns into the hand that grabs, you tell the hand to f' right off. He's going to sell his books regardless, no reason to mollify a vocal minority.
All artists should be willing so stand up for themselves like this, IMO.
