This book is not big enough for that and there are thousands of very good books on the subject already, as well as websites that give online advice and tutorials.

Don’t worry if you missed out; you don’t need to know that you are writing in prose, as long as you are, or that an independent clause must contain a subject and predicate, as long as it does.
But if you feel your written English isn’t up to the task of writing your story and you seriously want to write, then you will need to set about improving your core skills, as you would before undertaking any new task.

Now write another small paragraph describing the outcome. This is obviously pure fantasy, so you are writing creatively, imaginatively and from your subconscious.
