I am interested in writing stories or a novel. But I have no experience outside of writing essay and assignments for school.

I've also only recently started reading for enjoyment about a few months ago so I feel like I don't know enough to start. I don't even have any real ideas at the moment.

Can anyone who writes (whether you do it for fun, to relax, aspiring to be published, etc.) provide any advice?

Brainstorm and create a plot outline in order to set the basic elements for your story. A list for your characters, setting, and so forth is a great idea as well. For there, just keep on writing as you go along. I would recommend that you read guides on character internal and external dialogue, character development, etc.

Good Luck!

Just write! Keep a diary and write daily. Also attend a creative writing class and try to intern at a production company or theater group to get a sense of how the creative process is like. People just think they'll just write a hit. It takes a lot of opinions and reworking.
