1. Pick one.
2. Write a sentence. Repeat until story is finished.
3. Read what you wrote.
4. Good enough? No? Go to 5. Otherwise, go to 6.
5. Repeat 4.
6. Publish.

I'm sorry, I really can't provide you any more help than that, it really is that simple.

First step: pick one.

Have you ever written a story before?

Well, then just make an outline and start the story. (You'll get more helpful help If you asked a more specific question. ;P)

I have to start writing a story in my head before I can begin typing otherwise I'll just be shut down by blank paper syndrome.
If you're like me then you should maybe choose one idea for now, get really into it, go to bed and start imagining everything, describing everything in words. Rearrange those words, find a good place to start, and run through your narration several times in your head before moving on.

I found when taking a writing workshop that if I had a sentence handed to me as a jumpstart, the story could just spring off of that no problem. It just gets tricky when you have to write the first sentence yourself :shrug:
