How do I write a song with a guitar?

I know that you have to write a song with the chord progressions that are in the same key. I was just wondering how I would match them up to when I sing? How do I know where to put my capo? When I am singing a song, when do I switch chords? Is there anything else that I should know? Any tips?

Thank you :)

Update:

Also how do I know which key to sing a song in?

    s far as where to put your capo, I suggest you learn how to play all the chords without using a capo. If you can't play some without a capo, that will help you determine where you need to use the capo.

    Hope this helps you. Writing music is a lot of fun and when you sell a song it pays very well also.
