Without going into detail, my brain's been full of really different ideas lately, and I wonder if I'm reaching the crossroads Stephen King mentions. Technically writing isn't my career (yet), but I know I want to achieve more with the next story I write. I'll explore different themes and different character types. It will be challenging, but what's life if it doesn't throw something different at you? Sometimes, to achieve something really special, you've got to push yourself rather than sitting back and rewriting the same old thing.
Is your next manuscript going to push your skills as a writer to the limit?
