I’m not adverse to change. In fact I consider myself to be highly adaptable. Most of the time you can’t change a situation, but you can adapt to it.
Recently I have come across an opportunity to enter a writing contest, and I really feel drawn to write something to enter. The only catch is the contest calls for suspenseful/paranormal short fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. While I write all three types I don’t normally write suspense, thriller, or anything about ghosts. I can, just don’t normally.
What’s funny is there has been on increase of paranormal fiction coming across my path recently. Articles, blogs, even some poetry has popped up on my newsfeed, timeline, and email. It’s been inspirational honestly. I’ve wanted to branch out and here is my chance. Whether I win or not isn’t really a huge concern, though that would be nice. I want to write.
I’m going to do it. I’m going to take a deep breath and try something new.
