I've passed 80k words on my latest draft of the Faithful. Unfortunately, I've begun to slow once again and am seriously considering moving onto my next project. Not that I'm considering scraping the Faithful, but I am running into the problem of just a lack of inspiration. There's too many threads that are floating about from previous drafts that I still need to sort through.
I've got three projects that are floating about. I spent the last few nights scouring through artwork for inspiration. Most of it hit the most recent idea, that of a Magician and deals with demons. The unfortunate thing is that this is a multiple city spanning story. I've got several other novels that would go a long way towards establishing the world I've built.
The problem comes with establishing these disparate cities, wrapping them in a constant world. The old cliche of the chicken and the egg. I am looking forward to all of these stories, to delving into their universes, but as I said, I have a deeper, more intricate story that is pressing itself into the front of my brain.
