Who knew? Something the Dream Series has in common with Game of Thrones

OK, maybe I’m overselling it a little bit…

But there’s an interesting interview with George R.R. Martin, and one thing he says is this:

And pretty soon, you’ve written hundreds of pages and a week has passed, instead of the six months, or the year that you wanted to pass. So you end a book, and you’ve had a tremendous amount of events — but they’ve taken place over a short time frame, and the eight-year-old kid is still eight years old.

I’ve had the same thing happen in writing the Dream Series books.  Especially as the series has progressed, I find that the stories really tend to get compressed in time.  DREAM STUDENT takes place over a a six or seven week span, and DREAM DOCTOR does as well.  The new book, by contrast, FEVER DREAM, happens over just less than two weeks.

I can promise that one thing I do not have in common with Mr. Martin (besides millions of fans and truckloads of money delivered regularly by the nice people at HBO) is that you won’t have to wait five years or more for the next book.  I promise!
