Do you have any suggestions about writing short stories?

I haven't done many short stories, mainly because I'm not very good at them. (Or is it the other way around?) But, I do have suggestions based on what's helped me in the past.

It definitely helps to tone down the idea in general. It's hard to write a short story when the concept calls for drawn maps, the fate of the universe, etc... so I'd keep the main idea down to a short sentence and try to pull off the writing as quickly as possible. In my experience, it's easier to put in more detail than take out.

I hope that helps :D

Ask me anything
