If you are interested in short short stories, I recommend Holly Lisle's method to get the creative juices flowing. Hers is not the only way, but if you like to plan out your stories, this may work for you: How to Write Short Fiction That Doesn't Suck.
So far I've entered four contests in the past two months.

CBC Canada Writes, Nov. 1
I've included the links for your information.
For poets and poetry fans, I've also posted a couple of my poems recently on Wattpad which you can read here.
The titles are:

Happy reading, and writing.
