Hello from Tennessee as well!

I feel that struggle on a spiritual level. I've scrapped countless fantasy writing endeavors after reviewing the first 40-50k words and thinking, "My god, I'm not even a third of the way in."

Do you have a major inspiration for writing medieval fantasy? I've always loved the stuff, had several ideas come and go, but I've never felt confident in my knowledge of the medieval era as a whole to write a compelling and informed piece.
