Does knowing it's coming completely the soften the blow when it actually comes to time to reap the costs of those actions (or on this case lack of action lol)? It's like someone who leads a very unhealthy lifestyle year after year knowing that it will probably have consequences down the road but knowing that their ongoing habits are going to cost them doesn't necessarily make it that much easier when it does cost them.

Pretty much.

ASOIAF is his creation, his "baby". And what's happened is akin to letting someone else finish raising your kid from age 12 on. He was paid and had some instant gratification with things that followed but it's a bitter pill to swallow now.

I'm alive certain that if he could go back and do things differently, he would --either delaying the deal with HBO, or revising his schedule to eliminate lots of relatively unimportant trips and diversions.
