You can use google docs or download Libre office which is similar to Microsoft word https://www.libreoffice.org/
Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.

The simplest thing to do to start with is just to post it here like you would any other post -- there are some quite extensive fics posted here from years ago (example). Or you could sign up for one of the many fanfiction websites (like the venerable FF.net or the newer AO3).

You will find it convenient to use a simple text editor (though probably more featured than just plain Notepad) to compose the text offline, then just copy/paste into place here (other places will have their own upload procedures). You probably don't want -- and certainly don't need -- a word-processor (MSFT Word or equivalents) as the formatting/effects you can do aren't going to carry over. In some cases (as I remember of FF.net 15-ish years ago) even things like smart-quotes, which get auto-inserted, will not be welcome.

AO3 lets you paste rich text format right on in.

Write story, copy story into desired publishing platform, click save, and then share your embarrassment with the world, it's really quite simple.
