Don't force the issue. Don't try to plot just yet. Like I said before you are still building up muscles. Imagine your character in different situations and write up the scenes. Don't try to thread them together until you have finished a few scenes.
Write scenes of your character doing different things. These should be the movie trailers you see in your head when you think of your story. The exciting stuff that keeps you awake because you are so buzzed over writing your story.
Do this again and again. You are in the training phase of your writing. You need a lot of experience under your belt. So go through task 5 and 6 over and over.
