I am about to start writing a story also :) The way I'm going to do it is to just think for a while about what I want it to be about. I'll probably think on it for a day or two, and when I hit on something really good, I'll start jotting things down anytime they come to my head.Come up with some characters, and then a problem, a journey on the way to the solution, then the solution to the problem. And then once I'm pretty sure what I want my story to be like, and what I want the plot to be, I'll draw a timeline and put the major events on there from beginning to end, Then fill it in a bit, and then just choose which part I want to start writing and write! You can always go back and fix whatever, and you don't have to write it in any particular order. :)
You need first to sit back and think of what fiction you want to give your book. You can then get a note book, which you can travel with everywhere. Write down every single aspect that inspires you in writing your book. Create your outline, which will help you define the arc of your narrative. You will need also to get source materials that you can collect information from, to give basis to your story. A good narrative should have setting, characters, the conflict, the climax, the resolution and details.
I'm always writing---I have six different story ideas happening right now.
Usually, I get an idea about a scene and write it down; this usually ends up as my beginning. I like to start my stories in the middle of the action, but not too far in that I have to backtrack.
As more scene ideas come, I outline (or just write down a really long summary). This outline becomes my skeleton of the story; my outline has my beginning, middle, and ending. All that's left for me to do is fill it in.
