    Struggles with short stories.

    When I write a short story, it isnt good since I either drag it out to long or rush it. I only get 15 minutes. Also I can't think of a good conflict/problem that the protagonist faces and when I do think of a problem and I write it, it doesn't go good with the rest of the story.

    Is this also about the year-9 selective school task?
