This particular Fussy staffer is marking ten years in Des Moines, Iowa, today.
It seems like the decade has flown by — but that's likely not how many George R.R. Martin fans feel.
It's been well over ten years since the Song of Ice and Fire author began writing The Winds of Winter, the second-to-last book in his series.
And in that time, as book fans have eagerly anticipated the installment, the TV show based on his series has begun and concluded.
Esquire takes a tongue-in-cheek (but also maybe a little annoyed?) look back at the years of delays in The Winds of Winter ... and Martin's frustration with impatient (and rude) fans.
For what it's worth — the author insists it really is close to completion now.
