Writers come in all shapes and sizes, from every country in the world, and are practically every age.  Some people write about history, some write science fiction, and some write about things that are happening in this very moment.  Regardless of what kind of writer you are (or want to become), you should seek the advice of those that are already doing it (and you'll probably find some that say you shouldn't be a writer). Find some resources that can help you in your journey. http://writetodone.com/2012/09/10/how-to-be-a-writer/

Here is a guideline for writing a literary analysis.  It's slightly different than the advice given in this lesson, but there are so many different approaches.  Research different methods, and determine which one works best for you. http://www.gdn.edu/Faculty/sraynie/how%20to%20write%20a%20literary%20essay.htm

Many resources exist to help you properly account for all of your work.  All fields of research agree on the need to document scholarly borrowings, but documentation conventions vary because of the different needs of scholarly disciplines. MLA style for documentation is widely used in the humanities, especially in writing on language and literature. Generally simpler and more concise than other styles, MLA style features brief parenthetical citations in the text keyed to an alphabetical list of works cited that appears at the end of the work. http://www.mla.org/style
