Robert Jordan milked The Wheel of Time, but at least he kept to a predictable schedule, and left copious notes for Sanderson to follow up on.
I don't think that's a fair assessment with respect to GRRM. It's just that the plot is so complex, he had some gigantic knots to untangle to make sure the timeline and a host of other minor details were kosher. It doesn't help that he's also a perfectionist. But I have faith.
