This is the biggest issue I have with trying to think of a plot for my short story. Some plots are too large for a short story. Some are too small. For example, a man overthrows a government, too large. A woman finds her lost car keys, too small. I need to think of a plot that is interesting enough to entertain a reader, but not too complicated that I have to crowbar a ton of information or scenes in it. For instance, I was thining of entering the recent contest for 'The Discovery' but most of my initial ideas were too large and I couldnt think of a conflict to go with it. I'm trying to think more outside of the box so to speak. Anyone else have this problem?
