How to Write a Creative Short Story

How would you create a short story describing different aspects of a hero’s life?

Describe and name the main characters. Analyze the problem the main characters face and why it is a problem. Is there a solution to the character’s problem? Is it easy to understand? Is it always clear which character is speaking? Is the story very well organized? Does the story contain many creative details and/or descriptions that contribute to the reader’s enjoyment?
