George R.R. Martin Not Writing an Episode for Season 5

Well it would seem George is getting quite serious about finishing The Winds of Winter.  In a recent interview with EW George R.R. Martin said he would not be writing an episode for season 5 of Game of Thrones, but will rather be spending his time finishing the book.  

In the past George has always written one episode for each season.  The episodes he has are: The Pointy End (Season 1, Episode 8), Blackwater (Season 2, Episode 9), The Bear and the Maiden Fair (Season 3, Episode 7), and The Lion and the Rose (Season 4, Episode 2).  All the episodes written by George have been fantastic, and although I’ll miss having George writing an episode in season 5 I’m happy that he is going to be spending more time on The Winds of Winter.

So what do you think?  Are you happy to see George spending more time on The Winds of Winter?  And just for fun, when do you think we’ll get a release date for the much anticipated book, The Winds of Winter?
