Oh and (sorry for all the posts ) regarding taking classes. They will also teach the rules of how to write different types of stories (and believe me there are rules depending on if you're doing a first or third person narrative, biography, children's book (will require you to use certain language that is easily understandable depending on grade level), etc.).

Rules are made to be broken, but it's not suggested for novice writers to do this because it can make for a really horrible piece of work. You can't break the rules until you know what they are in the first place. You will see experienced writers mess with the rules of storytelling, but it is generally because they're going for a certain effect. When a novice writes with no regard to those rules it tends to just look like a mess...
