    It's worse than that. The Dany Chapters from book one were released as a serial in Asimov's (or was it F&SF?) years before that book appeared.

    This gets into outlining verses pantsing, but originally GRRM planned a five year story gap between Storm and Feast. A chance for the younger characters to grow up and Westeros to undergo some gradual changes. But he couldn't make it work. At one point, he was contemplating plugging the gap with a seven chapter prologue, but couldn't make that work, supposedly because the Dornish situation was too complex and Cersei was really busy killing people. Then he finally said screw it and scrapped the gap.

    Hmm, that is how the Game of thrones story is. Many different character novellas intertwined into one large book.
