It sounds so obvious, but even if you don’t know where you’re going or what you’re going to do in your story, write. Sometimes you'll Find that the story finds you.

The second best piece of advice I could give is that you should read. Read as much as you can. Read different kinds of books. Learn what makes a “good” book. Live words. (less)
