To be a writer one must be observant to his surroundings. You can get inspirations and subjects to write when you know how to observe people and your surroundings. You must have your own style. Must be fluent in the language as your medium . This is only some of the basic skills you must learn. If you want to really learn, the first thing you must do is to READ. Read and you'll learn the trade by yourself.

Writing an article is like an art/skill most times. Even the best writers have writers block and cannot write a novel each year, while other can so several times a quarter. Basically you find a topic that you truly have interest with and are passionate and clear as to what you like about it. Write out all your general key points and do some research to back up your subject. You review, add and edit until you yourself find it something that perhaps would pick up and read. If this area is knew to you then perhaps selecting and writing a how to maybe an area to start. Some do articles on particular sites they are on this way they give a general idea as to how to earn from your article. I believe you too are at Triond, take a look at some of the articles up there and that should give a basic understanding. It would be difficult for anyone to give you key ideas as we would not know what your topic is about. Good luck and I hope this helps and sorry if I could not provide further detail.
