    But he also said he never stopped writing, just slowed down to figure things out.

    He also had some publisher issues.  He was working on Storm of Swords when his deadline hit, and he wasn't done, so he clipped the more finished chapters, polished them a bit and sent them on, then set to finishing the others (which became Dance with Dragons), while outlining the next book.  That's why SoS and DwD don't include all of the major characters.

    And he tends to put things off until he knows in his head what will happen, and sometimes he isn't satisfied, so he waits until it congeals.

    Being a writer is not as simple as the media makes it out to be.  :)
