I'd also like you to seek out some advice on your own. Writer and thinker Maria Popova hosts a great website called Brain Pickings. She collects a lot of great advice from all sorts of thinkers and posts them on her site. The following post about Stephen King's On Writing also includes links to writing advice (most in list form) from several other successful writers.
For homework, click on some of those links found on this post, and select two rules that make sense to you--or interest you in some way. For homework, copy them down in your writer's notebook and explain why you selected them underneath.
