Even if those conversations never end up in a book, they get you insight into your characters and how they sound.

If you have characters already but aren't sure what you want to have them do in your story, writing prompts are a great place to start too. There are books of prompts, but sites like Pinterest are a goldmine of ideas under the writing tag.

The biggest thing to do is just write and read a lot. Read the type of books you want to write, read books that are a totally different genre but you just love the author's style, read anything that looks interesting.

And don't be surprised if once you get started your characters take you in a whole different direction than you expected. I can't tell you how many times I'll be writing something and a have a "I did not see that coming" moment.(less)
