I have finished one, and am working on two, books of short stories. Each book has its’ own theme. Any stories that I write that do not go along with one of these themes are put away for later use. I do not know why, but I like working within specific themes when writing short stories.
I love writing short stories. I can turn out 3 to 5 stories, hand written 1st drafts, in a weekend of relaxing in bed or on a sofa. Then it is a simple matter to type them up, edit them and add them to a book.
Creativity is fun. Ideas can come from anywhere. For example, you can create a story from the dream you had last night. Go ahead. Try it :-)
Create a series of short stories this year, and put them together to create an eBook. Edit it, and then publish.

The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say. ~ Anaïs Nin
