Short stories can be written in many different ways in many different genres. However, there are some popular topics one could write about:

1. Take a memory from your own life, and write about it in a fictionalized way, changing details to add aesthetics.
2. Getting through an obstacle: emotional, psychological, or physical.
3. A group of troublemakers become good after a certain event.
4. Someone goes on a journey to find something they are seeking, and finds something quite different.
5. Someone is living a mundane life, but something extraordinary happens to him or her that will change his or her life forever.
