With so many covers to open, pages to turn...Welcome to Short Stories.
Short story inspirations don't just appear the moment you sit down to write.
Distractions can get annoying, especially when you are at a difficult point. Don't despair. The most important inspiration you can have is belief in yourself.

Write a word here, jot a sentence there; and before long youíre rearranging paragraphs. In no time at all, you'll be moving lines, paragraphs, and sections into a completed short story;- and that is quite satisfying.
