This is most important tip for becoming a successful short story writer is to write for yourself. There is no absolute path for any writer, and if you really want to write something, write it. Don’t allow any set of rules hold you back from writing, it takes nothing to just write. You can always go back over it once you’re done to see if it works. If it does congratulations, but if you find that it doesn’t, that is what editing is for.
