Short Story tips from D'Alessio

Make a rough copy. Go ahead and write out the plot premise, choose your point of view and figure out if you want to have a protagonist and antagonist (you probably should have both|). Also, do you want your story to take place in the past and/or present, and/or future? Also, is your story set in a fictional setting or the real world? Then go back and add some or all of the following:
-something symbolic
-+ more characters
-+more dialogue (put it in proper format)
-+ imagery
-+literary devices
-+more catchy first paragraph
-develop characters/setting/conflict
