Could someone please help me with the basics of writing.
Look around the net for basic writing. That's a start.
I would skip that and write. The primary thing is to tell a story. Don't try to tell it like anyone but yourself. Don't rush things. Writing takes time. read your own words as you start each writing session. Keep the pace even.
Check your spelling. Check your grammar. Read it out loud. Does it sound right?
Don't look too far ahead unless you have an outline of what you want to achieve.
There are other things to do but this is a start.
