I have to write a short story based on the themes Shakespeare explored in Macbeth. I have what I want to write about but I need help turning it into a short story. I don't need any links about short stories please, I know how to look up how to write short stories. I'm not really making progress with that.

    Since you know what you want to write, and have a brief outline of the plot -- at least in your head -- then I suggest you just plunge in and start writing. This will be a rough draft, so don't pay a lot of attention to mechanical details. Just get words down on paper.

    To make your writing a tad more organized. I would write down a one word "and then what happened" outline.
    It will give you a idea of how you want the action to flow.... each event leading to the next one ...to the inevitable climax.

    Then you can see that the flow works before you have all those great words on paper.
