    Create characters and develop the characters. 

    Then you would have to plug it into the story

    Think of your own ideas and find your own ways. Write whatever fictional story you want.

    Have you written a story for English class?  Have you read stories?

    A story has at least one character (a human, an insect, a dinosaur, an angel) who has a desire and must do something to get what he or she wants. How that character works to get the prize, who or what stands in the way, how the character overcomes the obstacles (if he or she does overcome them) and what happens to the character or what the character learns while that happens is the basic story.

    I recommend reading books like "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing a Novel" and similar books in the Dewey decimal class 808.  Some here say "Rubbish!".  That's fine for them. I agree there is no "guaranteed method" or "magic recipe" to write a story, and that crafting a story, a sermon, an essay, a poem, etc. is hard work.  But the "Idiot's Guide" and similar books explain the parts of a story, and what to notice while reading a story, and I think that is good for an aspiring writer. 

    The other part of the way to learn is practice. It's like learning to sew a dress. The books and the pattern instructions help, but you have to cut the fabric, (knowing which pieces will become the sleeves), baste the right two pieces together, thread the machine and SEW.  Some fabrics are terrible to sew. Some patterns are hideous. You find that your choices are not perfect and you learn through sewing, cutting open the seam threads of what you sewed, repositioning the fabric and redoing it over and over every day or giving up that project and making rag dolls from the fabric. Same with writing. Sometimes it works. Most of the time you are adjusting and resewing -- er, rewriting -- the story to make it fit better the idea in your mind.

    Not by asking 'how to'.

    If you have a story inside you that you want to tell, sit down and write it.

    It will help if you have the habit of reading. The more you read, the more you understand the different ways of telling a story, what matters and what doesn't, and what is likely to work.

    On a computer, using Word or similar, or on paper using a pen.

    Your choice.

    If you need to ask, you don't have a good story in you waiting to be born. You might as well be asking how to write a beautiful song or how to paint an impressive painting. Stories, songs, and works of art can be produced in a variety of different ways according to the techniques and the preferences of the people creating them. But it would be completely impossible to provide advice that would guarantee that the end result would be "good" if it were followed to the letter because writing, like all art forms, just doesn't work that way. How many people own cookbooks and still can't serve up a decent meal? How many people have "How To..." manuals cluttering their bookshelf and still can't build a birdhouse or fix a clogged sink? The surest way to set yourself down the path to creating a "good" story is to read a lot of well-written books and to practice writing often. There are no shortcuts and no magic tricks.
