What makes a good short story?

Theme- A theme is something important and meaningful that you as a writer want to pass along to your lovely readers

Plot- This is most often about a struggle the main character is going through, whether it is within oneself or towards an outside force. The main character should also win or lose on their own, do not just rely on someone else to save them.

Basic steps of plot are: conflict begins, things go right, things go WRONG, final victory, wrap up. PS Novels have many conflicts, short stories should only have one.

Characters- Before writing your novel, know your characters well! Main character should have one flaw or weakness. In the real world, nobody’s perfect!

Style and tone- Always use the best possible words when describing something, one that is closest to what you want your reader’s to imagine or experience.
