You're setting yourself up for disappointment if you have any optimism.
While it's true that there is a good chance I am disappointed, it would suck to wait this whole time without any optimism. I realize 2014 is a serious longshot, but it's not entirely impossible.
The books are just not important to him anymore
You can't be serious with this. It's his life's work and his legacy. Yes he is enjoying travelling, but I think he is feeling the pressure from the show and ready to knock some POV's out. He has made recent comments about how the show is creeping and he knows he needs to keep moving forward. Before he had no pressure to move fast. Hence long arse time between books. There is a pressure now unlike any he has felt. He may say frick it in the end, but I am not choosing to have such a dismal outlook on something so freaking awesome.
