How would you rephrase "it won't take long" to a positive sentence? Is "it will take short" idiomatic?

More context: "it" refers to any activity like shopping, or hair cutting, or tidying up.

  • I wouldn't rephrase. "It won't take long" is a perfectly acceptable sentence. – James K Apr 24 '19 at 19:53

Depends on the exact context, but something like "I'll be done shortly" or "It will be done soon" could work. You can't say "It will take short."
