Writing a story means beginning as close to the peak as possible – everything else is a diversion or a change of flow. A short story can take a more winding path, but should still start with a scene that sets the tone for the entire storyline. 
A short story conserves characters and scenes, typically by focusing on just one incident or conflict and drives towards a sudden, unexpected revelation. Go easy on the exposition and talky back-story or just a flags back narration – your reader doesn’t need to know everything that you know about your characters. 

Drawing on a real-life experiences, such as winning the big game, bouncing back after an illness or injury, or dealing with the death of a loved one, are attractive choices for story writers who are looking for a personal story based telling. But simply listing the emotions you experienced is not the same thing as generating emotions for your readers to experience. 

It is vital to understand the basic elements of story writing before we consider how to put everything together. This process is comparable to producing something delicious in the kitchen-any ingredient that you put into the bowl will give the impact of a finished loaf of bread. To create a perfect loaf, the writer must balance ingredients baked for the correct amount of time and enhanced with the right polishing shiny finishing. 

In order to develop a living, breathing, multi-faceted character, it is important to know the way more about the character than someone will ever use in the story 

All Perspective of first, second, or third person as a writer, the writer need to determine who is going to tell the story and how much information is available for the narrator to reveal in the short story. The narrator can be directly involved in the action subjectively, or the narrator might only report the action objectively. 

The stories included in the collection titled “A Lot Like Love & Other Short Stories” by honorable short story writer Nidra Naik, published by “Become Shakespeare “are fabulous in its craft and content. This is her 2nd collection of six heart touching stories, emerged and picked from the life of the people from the neglected land of east of India, Odisha. The book is well designed, both interior and exterior, a good read to all story enthusiastic, highly recommended.
