If you can write a post, you can write a story. Bang it out like you're telling it to your best friend. Then read it over with the absolute understanding that it's raw and wriggling. That's when you start looking into ways to improve it (advice on websites and other things that are suddenly attainable and bite-sized now that the story is written). Or, maybe you're kinda *meh* about the whole thing and move onto something else.
If you want an audience, create an elevator pitch for your story. "Mankind recreates dinosaurs through cloning and a group of exothermic fur-less furries take a walk on the wild side ..." and see how people react. Sometimes it's amazing what clicks with people and develops a life of its own. Other times (most of the time) its just a "cool story, brah."
