I think the pressure was ON GRRM to release TWOW before the series could catch up to him. The minute that was out of question (over a year ago), he gave up on the urgency and I think he's going to release when he feels it's 100% finished.
I would add to this that often times when one gives up on a deadline, one's rate of productivity declines horribly. When you are racing against the clock, you tend to really burn on all cylinders, and the need to finish gives you the adrenaline to keep going. Once you realize that it's a lost cause, the adrenaline stops and the crash often is huge. I have been through that a couple of times, and it is a miserable experience: and rates of productivity decline when misery is high.

Despite what Ned's been saying for years, THIS winter is not coming. At least not anytime soon.
heh, by the time GRRM does get it out, people might not remember what winter is anymore! :D

Whether WINDS or the first volume of FIRE AND BLOOD will be the first to hit the bookstores is hard to say at this juncture, but I do think you will have a Westeros book from me in 2018... and who knows, maybe two. A boy can dream...

Well I wouldn't put money on it yet!

When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east, when the seas go dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves.... then and only then will TWOW come out.
Lol! My favourite response to this whole thread! :)

I did toy with waiting for the show to finish even if the book comes out first... and then I can concentrate on the true story from GRRM but my resolve would last about 2 minutes before I crack the front cover.... I'm just going to take whatever ASOIAF content I can get, in whatever form it comes in.
