I have been trying hard to figure out how to write a short story. I have only written novels, and my brain does not seem to want to engage with a shorter, snappier story with a focused purpose. I look at prompts, and my brain goes completely blank. I can't imagine writing a story about THAT, etc. It usually involves some clever trick at the end, doesn't it? A 'twist.' I haven't a clue, frankly. I've also seen the other kind, which I'd call 'vignette' that is simply a description of somebody doing something ...the end. What's with that? What's the trick? Has anybody else made the jump? I know lots of people who write short stories and want to try their hand at a novel ...but I don't know anybody going the other way. Any tips from those who have been there, done that?
