Just write. Write, write, write. Like many aspiring writers, I've had several book ideas - some good, some less so. Sometimes, I would draw up outlines or think through a few lines of text here or there, but that's as far as I would take it. When it came to writing "Diehards," I just started conducting interviews and writing. The writing wasn't always perfect immediately and I went through several revisions ... but 10 pages quickly becomes 100, and 1,500 words quickly becomes 20,000. If you aspire to write, know that there is nothing stopping you!
