So when G RR Martin was taking so long to write Winds of Winter, I thought I would just hack a copy myself. And by "hack", I mean I would write it.
I had a good sense of the characters, and I knew what I wanted to happen so I started writing.
It came out utter rubbish.
Wondering why, I realizes I was using Google Docs whereas George Martin used Wordstar.
This is all coming together.
