With that in mind you should transpose this aspiration to your writing. What I mean is that you should aim real high. Shoot for the Stars! Pull out all the stops and make it BIG! It has got to be an epic and it has got have some great fantasy! Don't hold back. Give it everything you've got and when you are totally drained and out of ideas reach deep down and dig some more.

The characters in your work are going to face enormous obstacles and (hopefully) overcome tremendous adversity. Shouldn't you do the same?
