I usually plot out novels and spend most of my time attempting to write one (and never actually finishing one). I'm hoping that by attempting to write short stories I might actually complete them! So my question is how much can you fit into a short story? I've never tried to plot a short story and don't know what space of time, or how many events you might be able to fit in. Does it help to think of it as the length of a TV series episode? How do you best plan a short story?
