Developing writers often feel that a short story is a good place to start getting published. There’s some truth to this strategy. Short stores are smaller and more manageable than writing a novel. Stort stories must also have structure, conflict, character development, a hook, and stakes, all of which require skillful brevity and exceptional scene writing skills. You also need to understand the difference between a character-centered story and a plot-driven story.
The short story is a genre all its own.
