Today I finished an original one-shot for the "Kingdom Competition." Not sure what my chances are. I don't usually win these types of contests.
But you know what? I'm okay with that. I really wanted to do this to see if I could come up with another story idea that was completely original. And who knows what will come of it. I got the whole idea for "Watching Over Me" from a one-shot I did.
I think when it comes to writing, it's important to branch out, try new things, and really challenge yourself. Trying something different helps to keep the creative juices going. And practice makes perfect.
