I have an idea for a series of short stories. They would be about a young wizard who finds himself trapped in the land of the dead, even though he is very much alive. There is a road that leads from the land of the dead back home, but it is a difficult journey. When he passes by the different places souls end up, he might come across people he knew before they died. Could he help them? Could they help him?
What do you do with your creative energy in-between the drafts of a novel? Do you give the work space or do you dive back into it?
