If you think you have some good ideas for short stories, the number one tip is to write. Start writing the stories now. Sit and make yourself do it. Shoot for 500 words, and then put it away (unless you find yourself creatively inspired). Revisit it the next day. Have someone you trust review it. Patience is your friend here.

Always remember that you want to capture and hold the reader's attention. The common phrase to do this is "Show, don't tell." Instead of saying something is soft, use a metaphor to help show how it is soft.

Any time you have an idea, jot it down so you don't forget it. Then, pick one and jsut start writing. Brainstorm all the idea that are connected with that topic and just let it flow. You can correct for grammar, etc. later on.

You have 50 words left!
