1) Before you pick any genre on writing, you must first identify who you are most like.
2) Once you have discovered what your personality is like, then you pick what genre would fit you the most.
3) Once you're set on a genre you would like to write, simply look around you. Anything you look at can simply trigger an idea for your story - from a lamp to and old creaky floorboard.
4) Put a plot together. Once you have created a list of ideas you want in your story, organize those ideas to form your plot. Make sure your plot is organized enough to make sense to the readers. No reader wants to get confused. Most will lose interest and stop reading if that happens.
5) Use categories that your age group would find appealing. For example, young adults like realistic fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction.
6) After that, make sure your story seems interesting to you and the people who read it first. You and the first readers are the most important. This helps you decide if your story is worth the dream of publishing.
