Come up with an idea for a game, plan the parts of the game that should be included, code each part separately and join them together
Some parts that are very useful in these games:
-using multiple lists as a map that can be printed
-using Thread to make timed inputs for games like snake
I ran out of ideas might add more later :P

• Start small. (I began with Pong as my first JavaScript project a year ago)

• Know what you want to do before coding. (i.e. Make a pong game, make a maze game, make a .... etc)
• Have distinct and achievable goals. ("Make a UI prototype", "Fix this bug", "Organize this list", "Draw a picture of how this function should work", "Implement the function I drew")
• Use code from small projects to create larger ones. (My projects today, still use the same code I made in that Pong program I made)

• Discipline > Inspiration, force yourself to get into the habit of programming a little bit per day. (I still struggle with this one)

• Watch tutorials, interesting projects
One of my favorite youtube channels (programming + hilarious)

Creativity is key. And let me add the most used phrase as well "Practice, Practice, Practice".
