It's based on a town and characters my best friend and I made, and of course I'm going to give her credit.
I showed what I have in the story to my friends, including the one I made up the story with, and they all like it.
It's going to be called 'The Story of Majesta.'
EDIT: The basic summary: Kaitlyn is a girl who lives in the mysterious town of Majesta. She's been bullied in school ever since her parents died when she was eleven. One day she walks down the hallway and sees something she's always questioned the existence of - magic. As she delves deep to learn the truth, she uncovers secrets about her friends, her town, and even herself - that she never could have imagined.

Okay sorry, so first off, I’m a super duper writing nerd, write a story everyday almost...Anywho, What’s the story about! Each story and or book needs a beginning middle and end. (Oh gosh I sound like a teacher...) So for example, a girl could (beginning) meet a horse (middle, aka problem) the horse gets stolen. And (end) the horse gets saved. Also, make sure you don’t say “and” too much, makes the writing all chunky. And last but not least, each character has a personality.
Holy cow I just lectured you...
please dun be mad I’m a friggin riding geek

And if you get stuck, throw in so e random, oddball occurrence and decide how your characters will react in that situation. One of my favorites is "and then ninjas attacked!" If you don't like how that turns out, then you can clean it up or if it entirely when you edit it.
Oh! Editing! DON'T DO IT! It will be a strong temptation to go back and edit what you've written before. Resist that temptation! Keep plowing forward until you get to "The End." Once your first draft is complete, then you can start the editing process. If you start editing before you finish the first draft, you may never finish the first draft! So resist the temptation to do major editing or rewrites.
Those are the biggest tips I have. Let us know how it goes!
