My thought for someone 'just getting started' would be to just use your camera as much as you can, every day just take a picture of *something*, *anything*, to stay familiar with it & to learn a little more about how it works under every circumstance.
I've fallen into a terrible habit of using my iPhone for this kind of casual / day-to-day photography and have "been saving my Q for best" - a consequence is every time I pick it up I have to think about it a little first & it's not yet instinctive in my hands. Try using your camera (not just a Q, any camera) every day in every way and you'll always be ready and continually be learning - how does it work best indoors, outdoors, at night, at noon, for sunset, with kids / dogs / cars? etc etc.
I learned on an Olympus film SLR in 80's and had to wait (and pay heavily) for my feedback 7x5 prints a week later, so taking 200 digital photos in a day (and deleting nearly all of them) is such a joy by comparison & must be accelerating the learning curve.
