Short-Story Work

I've been working on some short-stories here for the past week. I tend to have trouble with the short-story format. I'm not used to the brevity that is needed for writing a complete story under 5,000-10,000 words. I'm doing my best and I'm submitting two that are finished. It's difficult, but I'm plugging away. If nothing else, I'll be getting better with each story. Writing is always a practice. It's like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it gets. No matter if these stories get published, I'll be improving the craft. So, the writing continues, and I'll be doing my best to get some writing in every day. Anyone who is trying to become a writer, the most repeated item that is repeated by every author is to write, write, and write some more.
