Read a lot of books, both in the genre you want to write in, and in those genres you aren't such a big fan of. You never know where you will come across a story idea. Read non-fiction as well, even if you're writing fantasy. You many come across some interesting fact you could incorporate into your fantasy world. And keep writing, every day, even if you feel like what your writing is complete garbage. Keep practicing! You'll get better.(less)

“The world is rated R, and no one is checking IDs. Do not try to make it G by imagining the shadows away.
