comment Thinking of a story for the past 10 years as an inexperienced writer, what should I do?
This is not the answer you want, but the length of a story is however long it needs to be to tell the story. It seems to me that you need to spend some time looking into the structure of storytelling, and what a story really is. Robert McKee has written a great book called 'Story' on the subject. Short stories range from 1000 to 20000 words, but most are between 4000 to 7000 words I think.
