A short story is a great way to try your hand at creative writing. These steps will help you to write a short story that expresses your unique point of view.
Step 1: Brainstorm
Come up with an idea for a story. Start with what you know; then move to what you don't know to draw inspiration.
Read as many short stories as you can to get a feel for the style.
Step 2: Outline
Gather your thoughts and write an outline. Develop your protagonist, or main character. Determine who you are writing about and how you want to tell their story.
Step 3: Write
Write your story either on paper or using a computer. Create a problem that your protagonist has to solve. This problem may be internal or external.
Step 4: Add detail
Add details so that your story is one your readers care about. Use vivid descriptions.
Bring a notebook with you everywhere you go so you can write down ideas as they come to you.
Step 5: Resolve
Include events that lead to a resolution of the problem. Resolve the story and enjoy the output of your creative energy.
