In terms of good story ideas, it is probably best to come up with those on your own. We have all heard the phrase "write what you know" and that is probably a good rule of thumb in this case. Or, write what you are interested in. There are so many websites on the web that offer writing prompts that they become a bit clichéd after a while. So if you want to come up with a good story idea, perhaps some good advice would be to just keep it in mind as you go through your day, and if something piques your interest, think to yourself, "where is the story in this?" or "where is there character conflict in this?"
It may make things easier if you start with the framework of a situation for your story, rather than the plot idea. For instance, you could imagine some conflicts around which you could build plot and character. Examples include contradictory characters (your protagonist says one thing but does the opposite), self-epiphany (your protagonist believes something to be true about themselves but realizes it is not), or confrontation (your protagonist has to confront another character about something but does not want to do so). Hope that helps...

Focus on sticking to the point and only including information relevant to the main focus points. If you find that your story is becoming lengthy, think about what information is not essential and remove it. Or, you might find that you have included a side-plot that is not needed.
If you have a topic that interests you, dive right into it. All you have to do is limit your writing and realize that you need to be specific and to the point.
