Nonfiction writers doubt their skills when it comes to writing short fiction. You don’t know where to start.

What areas are the most challenging for you? Is it coming up with story ideas? Writing stories? Marketing using stories? Selling more ebooks?
For many years, there was no money in writing short fiction. Now there is, and there are many good reasons for writing short fiction.
