I am by no means an expert, but here are some things I've picked up over the years:
1) Know your idea. If you're wanting to write about someone's time at Hogwarts or about how a character has to defeat an enemy, figure out the setting, how to set up the climax (the point where they overcome the overall problem) and what the effects will be, which includes my second tip.
2) KNOW YOUR ENDING. I can't even tell you how much it kills me when people start writing these stories, but they don't know how to end it so they give you this lame, unsatisfying ending that makes you pull your hair out and imagine your own ending.
(Ex. Fullmetal Alchemist: Ed gives up alchemy to stop Truth and save Alphonse. The manga's ending was set in stone which is why the story was such a success). Your ending means everything if it is not a drabble-series.
3) Side quest/problems. Write down a bunch of ideas you've had for other fics but take the ideas into consideration. If you can, maybe fit it into your story! Most books actually have more than one problem.
Example 1: Harry Potter: Hermoine in the first book tried to help Headless Nick and Harry joins Quidditch. In the 4th book I think, she makes hats for the house elves to wear.
Example 2: How to Train Your Dragon: Hiccup had his crush with Astrid and continuously tried to win her affection and acception of the other teens, yet the main problems were to help Toothless and prove to his father that he wasn't a screw up.
4) Develop your characters, but don't tell the reader directly at the beginning everything about them. Describe physical at the beginning, but wait to explain their personality as we should be able to pick up what they are like based from their actions and/or dialogue. (Uneducated/teenage like/sophisticated/accent). What ever you do, don't list.
Example: I'm blonde with blue eyes with a faint scar that goes through my right eyebrow and tend to tower over my friends (yah, I just used myself as an example..., but you see what I'm saying, right?)
Those are one of the most boring things to read, and I usually end up imagine my own design to whatever I'm reading because it's just that boring! Also remember not to make them say things that they wouldn't really say. Like, Bobby is this really southern man who grew up on a farm and wouldn't say "That's so incogitable." No, he probably wouldn't know what that means. Don't let the character go into a monologue either unless it really fits the plot, just most people get bored by them.
Remember: a trait that is never challenged is worthless. Saying someone is always honest but never is forced to make a decision involving telling the truth or being selfish means that the trait is pointless.
5) Another point to your character(s): what is their selfish reason to agreeing to go along with the plot? Is there another reason to saving the world besides being a good person? This is especially for those stories that are world-ending plots.
Example: Fullmetal Alchemist. Ed ended up saving Amestris, but he probably wouldn't have if it wasn't for wanting to help his brother get his body back
Example 2: Rise of the Guardians. Besides wanting to help stop Pitch in order to protect the kids, Jack wanted to get his memories back and fit in.
6) Description. Depending on how you phrase things or what words you choose can set the mood.
Example: Original sentence: He looked in the mirror but didn't like his reflection.
Changed to: He glared at the man beyond the mirror, who only stared back with the same emotionless expression.
See how it seems to have a negative atmosphere? Without needing to say "He's sad/angry", you were able to figure that out from indirect descriptions. That's why description is so important. When reading a book, there usually is at least five times more of description than there is dialogue. Use it!
7) Fluff. It can make or break your story. Tiny experiences, little opinions and side comments, bro moments, seconds of admiration to another character- they all add up and give the reader a perspective. It's also a great way to add details rather than just dump a whole bunch of info on a person at once on what kind of person a character is.
Example: Avengers: Black Widow and Hawkeye mentioning Budapest. While it wasn't important, it told us a bit about their characters and their relationship.
WHEN IT COMES TO WRITING YOUR WORDS ON PAPER:
1) Paragraphs. Most people aren't really sure how they work. A paragraph is really to separate ideas and let the reader know that something is a bit different than what you were talking about before, makes things stand out more. So character Abby asked where she can find her brother, a new paragraph should start for when Bobby responds to her. It makes it easier for the reader to keep track of who's talking.
Example: (not what you want) "Hey, where's Ryan," Abby asked. "Oh, he should be on the upper deck," Bobby called over his shoulder.
(What you want)"Hey, where's Ryan," Abby asked.
"Oh, he should be on the upper deck," Bobby called over his shoulder.
(plus doing this makes it easier to edit)
Another example would be Abby is thinking about stupid her brother is and thinks of a memory of him. In a new paragraph, she focuses on bobby.
2) COMMAS FANBOYS. I didn't realize how very few people knew how they work, but a basic way to use them is remembering FANBOY. They stand for For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, and So. These are trigger words to know that a comma CAN be put in front of them. however, it's a bit more than just a word to know if it's needed. There's this thing about subjects(noun) and verbs, and they are indications for commas. Let's go back really quick and ask what a Phrase is. A phrase has a subject and verb, like "I am" or "She walked". You'll notice though that a lot of writing has more than one subject and verb like "She went to the park, and she bought a balloon." Two subjects: She and She. Verbs: Went and Bought. Notice if you took out the comma and "and", it would sound like two sentences. FANBOYS act like the bond between them that makes the phrases sound smooth together, but when there are two subjects and two verbs, you have to have a comma.
"Jonny walked to the supermarket, and he bought an ice cream sandwich."
"They went to the park, but john was nowhere to be seen."
Most of the time when you write these sentences, you will drop the second subject. If this is done, you DON'T NEED a comma.
"Jonny walked to the supermarket and bought an ice cream sandwich"
"They went to the park but could not find him."
3) COMMAS WWABBITS. It stands for When, While, As, Because, Before, If, Though and Since. These words can be used at the beginning of a sentence or in the center to connect between the two phrases.
"Because I was sick, Anna left my house"
"Anna left the house because I was sick."
Notice unlike FANBOYS in the second sentence that even though there are two subjects and two verbs, I don't need a comma. WWABBITS are considered strong enough to not need a comma. But the first sentence has no helping word from FANBOYS or WWABBITS. That's because WABBITS make it sound like there's more to be said. like "While I went to the bathroom"... What happened? It sounds like there's more to say. So, a comma is needed.
About Me :
I love to read and write though my stuff never leaves my computer screen.
I'm extremely shy.
When I make tea or coffee, I have to put the sugar in the cup before anything else.
I'm terrified of dropping children, so I don't hold babies or toddlers. It's the reason I refuse to babysit.
I'm the middle child of two brothers, but I'm completely spoiled as being the only daughter.
If someone hasn't watched Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, or Star Wars, I consider it a crime.
I say sporks are the new Frankenstein. (Silverstein)
I dream about spin offs for books and movies.
I'm told that I am too calm, that I don't express enough emotions, but I'd rather analyze the situation and fix it rather than be throwing a fit or crying my eyes out.
I don't find most things funny, making people believe I have no sense of humor.
I hate being wrong.
I beat myself up for getting Bs and below in school.
My eye contacts are -7.00 which means I can't see much farther than a 4 inches in front of me before it blurs
I find it interesting when people are never sure when I'm being sarcastic or telling the truth.
I hate having to ask for help. I'd rather I being the one to help.
When I set my mind on something, I'm not known to change that idea. (Stubborn like a bull)
I like having all things planned rather than 'go with the flow.' If it's not planned, I get stress out.
I get sick... a lot.
A household rule is never mention these things at the table: religion, politics, and weight.
I refuse to cry in front of people.
It's better no one knows than let the drama unfold for speaking up, so I don't say anything.
I love to learn new things but get really bored in class. Pick up the pace, people!
I'm the observer rather than the talker/one interacting.
I despise drama with a burning passion of a thousand suns.
If there's no one to defend a person in a conversation, I will stand up for them, even if I don't get along with the person. No one deserves to be trampled on because they don't get along with a specific person.
I believe everyone deserves a chance. However, should my trust be wasted/abused, I will break ties forever.
I don't like having people angry at me which is why I try never to act out.
I'm terrified for the future. Who will I be? What will I do? Where will I go? What job? What college? Who do I bring along? Who do I trust?
Midlife Crisis is my middle name
I probably have general anxiety or agoraphobia.
Books, writing and drawing are my coping mechanisms.
I've never dated before or even gone with someone to a school dance. BUT it's nice to just talk to people and not worry about a possible break up that makes it awkward between us. I don't want to put our friendship in jeopardy.
I will always, ALWAYS, go to disney/pixar/dreamworks movies no matter how old I am.
I physically flinch when I think of mistakes or stupid things I've done. I'm scared that people might notice.
Because all of my siblings and I had medical problems as babies (and mom even lost twins in the womb), I'm afraid my kids would too and because of it, I don't want to have any. I'll adopt.
I don't truly trust people, so I don't let people get close to me, not even my own mother. Sure, I know people would have my back on certain situations, but I know people can be selfish too, leaving me to be selfish too by closing up from everyone one. Ironic, huh?
I'm afraid to find out what people really think of me.
I have really bad nightmares about my family, friends, or I dying. I even daydream about things going wrong and scare myself in the middle of school or events.
Because I'm an awkward snowflake, I prefer staying away from people in case I screw up. Physical interactions are even more awkward.

"The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment, but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.
