So I was looking for inspiration.
First I did a search for castle pictures. There are a lot of gorgeous pictures. A. Lot. I felt inspired just looking at them. Here's a couple:
(The one I wanted to show you the most is all rights reserved and I don't want to step on anyone's proverbial toes. So just go HERE if you are interested. GORGEOUS!
|This is a scene from Edward Scissorhands, but it's exactly how I picture Layla wandering through Tavares' castle.|
|From Internet Pop Culture. I love this. The sky is PERFECT|
|From timepassages tumblr|
This is not what I envisioned the entryway to be, but once I saw that picture I thought it was PERFECT!

As for the title - In the book I reference Magic or Enchantment as almost a living force (very inspired by Mercedes Lackey's 100 Kingdoms books) but I didn't like the terms "Magic" or "Enchantment" so I looked up both word in various languages thanks to Google Translator. "Magiciste" is I don't remember what, but it is different enough that I like it and looks enough like Magic not to be too confusing. And so I decided to use it for the title. For now anyway. But I likes it :D
What do you do to inspire yourself when you're dragging on a project?
