A few months ago I submitted a (very) short story to a mystery contest on Wattpad and ended up in the top 10. You can read it here. A few weeks ago I saw another contest that interested me – this time on the Wattpad Fairytales page. The contest is called Rewind the Classics and challenged writers to write a short story that is a twist on a fairytale, legend, or classic story. I thought about what story I could do and pretty quickly settled on Robin Hood. My twist? Robin Hood is a girl!
I had a lot of fun writing this short story. I’m still playing around with what genre I find myself most comfortable writing, although I don’t plan to pigeonhole myself into solely one genre just because I love so many genres.
