Impromptu in C minor, how to actually finish it?

So I feel very creative in the key of C minor. For something like an impromptu or a symphony, that is great. But at the same time C minor feels intimidating. C minor, out of all the keys is where my music tends to go all Beethoven. In other words, I tend to have sudden dynamic changes, sudden tempo changes, every aspect of Beethoven's style in my C minor pieces. And this makes me nervous that if I finish a piece in C minor, there is going to be someone comparing me to Beethoven in a not so great way. At the same time though, I also get the feeling that I just don't know when to stop.

No matter how many cadences I have or how many measures I have written, I seriously don't know where to stop in a C minor piece. There are so many things I can do in C minor that I typically don't do in any other key. For example having bVII going to I, in the case of C minor that would be Bb going to Cm. I also feel like the Bb note is critical for the minor feeling of C minor. Without it, it feels too much like C major for me to think of it as really being C minor and I instead think of it as a transition to C major.

So how can I overcome this nervousness related to Beethoven's style showing up in my C minor pieces and how can I actually finish a piece when it feels like so much more could be done in the key of C minor? 

Candlefire piano sheet?

in Piano

Hi! I'm just wondering if anyone has or is able to create the piano sheet for the song Candlefire which appears in Anne Frank. I accidentaly found it on Spotify and the music broke my heart. I'd like to play it, but I'm not able to write the proper sheet. I'd be glad if you shared it! ♥
