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? 

Looking For Submissions.

Hello! My friend and I are currently working on a short film to enter in youth film festivals. We are in need of a soundtrack. If anyone is interested in writing a piece for it please let me know. There's no guarantee we will use any piece, but we are still looking for options! If anyone would like to know more details feel free to ask. Thank you!

Goodbye - "Hachi: A Dog's tale" (FEEDBACK) ; Piano & String Orchestra

Heyo!
Have any of you seen the movie "Hachi: A Dog's tale"?
Well, I've taken the liberty to transcribe (or do the best I could) the main theme called "Goodbye". The movie is very emotional and part of that is because of the music, composed by Jan A.P Kaczmarek.
I could not find any sheet music (besides some for piano, which was sort of inaccurate anyway) so I decided to transcribe it myself.

I'd love feedback though! Thanks in advance!
