George R.R. Martin is likely not going to finish writing "The Winds Of Winter" soon now that he is going to work on "Game of Thrones" spinoffs. There are four ideas for "Games of Thrones" spinoffs on HBO, and Martin will be personally involved in two of them, reports say.

'Winds of Winter' already finished?

Unless however, that George R.R. Martin has already finished the highly anticipated "The Winds of Winter," the latest installment in his "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series. The author has been goofing around Twitter, which made fans think he is already done writing the book. He recently posted a meme of him, where he was wearing a hat sideways, saying "Wazzzuuuppp." It came with a caption that says, "My publishers say I have to start trying to appeal to a younger audience."

In another tweet, he wondered what his fans would be talking about in the comment box on his blog, and added, "Oh...right...The same ultra motivational speeches I get every day...

Yay!" He might have gotten used to receiving comments about when "The Winds of Winter" will finally be released.

The tweets came as a surprise to fans, as the account was previously used for official announcements. Martin has not used it to convey personal messages, let alone goof around like this, per Insider. The author confirmed his account was not hacked, so fans went on to speculate, and hope, that TWOW is finished.

Earlier this year, George R.R. Martin responded to a fan's query, saying that he has made some progress and thinks the book might be out this year. With his publishers needing three months to get the book printed and brought onto the shelves, some are rooting for a June release of the book, ahead of the July premiere of the "Game of Thrones" Season 7. The last two GoT seasons are likely to spoil his book, so it makes sense to have it out before the TV series.

'Game of Thrones' spinoffs in the works

HBO wants to have a follow-up series for the "Game of Thrones" after the show concludes next year. The network has hired four writers to work on different prequel or sequel ideas, and Martin will be involved in two of them. He will work with Jane Goldman (“Kick-Ass,” “Kingsman”) and Carly Wray (“Mad Men,” “The Bastard Executioner”), Entertainment Weekly reported.

Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, along with Martin, will be attached to these projects as executive producers, according to HBO. They are still working on the "Game of Thrones" Season 8.
