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.

comment How to invoke my creative side without investing too much time?
I don't agree with this. All skills can be improved, even without having an innate capability. You may get a better head start by having "talent", but nothing beats practising in the long run. Anyone who wants to write should have a go at at it, and not be told that they "sound like the last person who should be thinking of becoming a writer".

comment What is a good tool for organizing story notes?
I think the same discount also applies to Camp NaNoWriMo which is in April (and July). You choose your own goal there, so you don't even need to write 50k words

comment Do screenwriters freewrite/outline directly in script mode?
Thank you for your answer. I was looking for an even more micro level description of how screenwriters work. Do they start their brainstorming/discovery writing in the script format, or start with a general outline and add the dialogue and interior descriptions later?
