George R. R. Martin doesn’t outline his novels. “I find that if I know exactly where a book is going, I lose all interest in writing it,” he says. But back in 1993, when he’d finished writing the first 170 pages of what was then planned as a trilogy, he wrote a letter sketching out what he planned to do in the books.
Sort of Spoiler, maybe? What he finally created differs greatly from the notes, but the story’s not over yet, and some of his original plans may yet take place.
The pages were tweeted by UK bookseller Waterstones. The tweet has been deleted, but not before the images were captured by Pajiba, which posted them along w/a bullet list of the surprising items on Martin’s original outline.
