Hello,


My suggestion is to read books you like. See how the authors create the story, plot and characters. Establish a writing schedule. Write in a journal every day, like clockwork. Write whatever comes to mind. Think about what you want to do - do you like writing fiction or do you like writing poems? Join a book club at school. Read the book "The Artist's Way" and follow the suggestions on writing. If you can, subscribe to the Writer's Digest or Poets and Writers magazines. There are good ideas there on writing different types of creative pieces. If there's a writers' workshop in your city, go to one of their workshops.

As someone who is a creative writer, I can tell you that there really isn't any kind of "set-task" that you need to write. It's more like creating a schedule that works for you. As someone who is creative, you need to pick out the best time that you are creative. As for me, I write better in the evening when I have fresher ideas. Sometimes I write or create between classes when I'm working in the mornings but those are usually for other things.


One key thing to remember is that you don't want to force your creativity or it doesnt work for you. IF you have moment when you have a block or can't create as planned, take a break, read, and do something else that might get your creative stimulation going. That's why I do other creative things besides writing such as adult coloring and knitting.
