Writing the same genre day in, day out can be quite a bore. So to shake things up—to push the boundaries of my writing and creative abilities—I’ve decided to embark on this new challenge.
Every month of the year, I’ll write a story in one of the set genres below. And if you’d like to come along for the ride, you are most welcomed! The only rule you must follow is to write within the genre—everything else is up to (me and) you.
It’s time we stopped stifling our creativity by creating within our comfort zones. The only way to grow as a creator is to face the unknown.
