Writing a class or package is not nearly the rocket science

Class  : What is your base class?
Package: what functionality do you want to add to whatever class you are
using in your writing?

Find something similar, copy it 
make a test.tex get it and keep it running
while you go down your checklist of what you want different.

It is not perfect but it gets the job done.
