Gotta say, I agree with GRRM's attitude in this instance, The entertainment world made him rich beyond belief for a story he'd yet to finish. Is it his fault there's no end to his story on our schedule? No, it's not.

Did the new found fame and wealth slow him down? You bet, as it would anybody. Hey, while you're in this mode, can you stop by and talk for 2 years about how great you are? We'll pay tons of money for you to stop writing and travel all over to tell your story and give us hints of what's to come (He never does) so what do you think - can we pay you to stroke your ego for a while? I promise, it's just this one time (BS) and you can go back home and write (Mega BS)

The damn TV show will likely fit most people's desires for story. Mr. Martin's take will be an afterthought in a sense, but there is always another film company waiting in the wings to solve the problem when money is on the table.

My Take on the situation
