If you are new to writing, it can be hard to know just to plan and arrange your ideas into a well-flowing structure. One of the best ways is to learn from other writers by deconstructing their stories. I've been writing for a long time and looking back I can see how my skills have developed. I used to wish to be published at the age of 18. However, now I am really REALLY glad I didn't attempt it. I was not ready and I have seen how much better my writing has become over the years. Now I consider myself a much stronger writer* and one thing I noticed as my skills improved was how I started to react to books and movies.
