  11. I don't know how should I start it off ?

  12. And a short story should be how many paragraphs ? 4?

  13. Before you can start if off or determine the length, you need to figure out what your subject or topic is.

    One thing that has worked well for my grandchildren is to think of something in their life and then spin a story from it that is fiction. The idea was something from life, but the result was a short story.

    Beginnings and length come later.

  16. Definitely not start it with "Once upon a time."

    Some ideas --

    She was scared!

    Her brother was getting beaten -- badly beaten.

    She loved her brother -- but was worried about him.

  20. You can do it either way.

    A short story of four paragraphs would be a really short, short story.
