At what point in the long slog of a project do you decide it's no longer viable?
When is it time to toss it in the proverbial dust drawer?
When's it time to say that enough is enough and the characters and plot no longer interest you?
Because if they don't interest the writer they're sure as pigs loving slop not gonna interest a reader.
When is it time to say goodbye to the stories and characters you've spent years listening to? When's it time to say goodbye to the ones whose stories you'll never get to listen to?
All this to say that I may soon be saying all this to yet another fantasy project.
