If you read a lot of books, you will start to subconsciously see how plots are formed and even get some good ideas for your own book. It's very, very important to read a lot when you are writing because of all of the literary techniques that pop up without you even knowing it. Having a 'storyboard' will help too, so you know what you are writing towards and you are not just writing towards space lol.
Well, if you want to improve your skills, write about something you enjoy! You'll find it less likely to get bored along the way. Still don't know? Think about something you yourself would like to read about right now. A romance, a mystery? Don't be afraid to write about something you don't know EVERYTHING about. Part of being a good writer is to do a bit or research XD
