Use your own idea or follow a prompt. It's all good as long as you write a short story every now and then.
How many hours, days, or weeks do you take to write a complete short story?
I'll let you know when I get there. I will let you know, however, that you forgot to list the proper time frames; months, years, or decades!
The story's usually completed in my head, translating it into words on a page can take weeks.
Usually I can can get the rough draft and the final draft in one day, and at other times, it takes some time to try to get what I'm trying to say down, so that they can understand it.
When writing comedy, consider using real-life events as a jumping-off point.
If you are read something humorous, do you actually laugh out loud or do you keep your reaction to yourself?
If I am alone, I keep my reaction to myself; however, if someone is with me in the room, I laugh out loud and tell the person what the humor is all about; then we both laugh out loud!!!!
HA
HA
HA!
When I read something funny, I laugh out loud, but then I have to try to silent my laughter, because by the look on some people's faces, I can tell that it wasn't funny. It's hard to do that, especially when the conversation was serious and all of sudden I burst out laughing, which is embarrassing at times.
Take up a poetry challenge with a spooky twist.
Identify two things that make a poem spooky to you.
How the ending happens, or how the author wraps up the story; and the author's intentions behind the poem. This only relates to, of course, creepy, or horror poems.
One, the topic of course, the second, description. For example, I can't pass up an opportunity, Here's an item written last year for All Hollow's Eve:

 All Hallows' Eve  (13+)
Sitting out Halloween Eve, should have stayed inside....

I want to finish the first draft of the story I am working on by Saturday.
I hope to contact a french bakery on Tuesday (They are temporarily closed because they just got back from Paris I heard) too see if they would be interested in hiring me. I also hope to finish the script for the third episode of The Inn, and release the Intro for it on Podbean. Oh! And finish my Hallowe'en costume! (It's a Stilt Walker)
I want to at least get the murder solved in my third book by the end of the week. I have the motive, means, and opportunity. I just can't seem to peg down one suspect from a party of 750 people. Half of whom are dancing for joy that the victim is dead.
