It looks like 1k - 4k words is sufficient for a short story, at least according to Wikipedia.
I can easily do 2k a day (unstructured non-story writing), so this is heartening.
@groovestomp I've been taking a writing course, lately, in hopes of improving creative thought/ability for artistic expression. So far, my results have not been particularly encouraging.
However, I've discovered that I absolutely _love_ Maya Angelou's work, so the time spent in the course has definitely been worth it :)
