I forgot who recommended it, and it's probably a mix of some writers. Anyway it was: Write short stories, a lot of short stories. This is supposed to help you understand the basic formula of writing a story (like being able to finish it, which is hard if you're a newb). Have your stories follow a path, and the path is clear in your head. The protagonist must desire something and is looking for something, it may be some ephemeral shit or some super important save the world tier shit, but the thing is to write a protagonist who wants something so that he does something (or not) and accomplishes something (or not).
The reason to do that kind of writing is to train yourself in the art of being able to put into words the ideas you have in your mind. Just like painting is not as easy as imagining it in your head, writing is the same.
