One of the best ways is just to start. Write down random tidbits of conversation, or describe a scene, or do a character profile. Before you know it, some of those little pieces will connect and you'll have a short story. It honestly take practice!

For ideas, there's a great tumblr page called "writing prompts" that I go all the time for inspiration. Another thing to try are character development prompts.

I hope this helps!
