Short Story Suggestions

First off, let me just say how happy I was to see all of the responses to my Official Kissing Day two part event. I was thrilled and flattered to see how much you all liked the videos and excerpt of one of my WIPs that I posted for the event and surprised at how enthusiastic all of you were about my story! :)

It is because of these positive responses that I was thinking about posting more short stories here on the blog and I wanted to know if any of you had any suggestions for what I should write about! To help you come up with suggestions, I thought it would help if I gave you a better idea of the kinds of things I like to write about:

*Anything with romance
*Anything involving the supernatural/paranormal
*Anything involving horror, secrets, betrayal, mystery
*And of course, since I love to write YA, anything involving teens

Hopefully that list was helpful, but I'm open to writing about other things as well! Leave your suggestions in the comments, I can't wait to see what you guys come up with and thank you all so much again for you comments on my last posts, they mean the world to me and inspire me to keep writing and not give up! :)

No suggestions seeing as my brain is close to overloading and it hurts to think at the moment. LOL. But I think what ever your short story will be about it will be pretty kick a$$.

My ideas: unrequited love, a romance with dark undertones, and an unsolved murder.

A teen who has to solve the mystery of a murder of a classmate. I'm personally bad at short stories. Every time I start to write a short story I think, wow, this would make a great novel and add it to the list. I don't know how to keep a story short. :)
