There's no teacher like trial and error.  My main advice, as one who's not far beyond raw beginner myself, is to build your complex project in small increments.  Think of the functionality you want to implement, and break it up into individual modules that focus on one aspect of it.

Functions can be simple and short, and always remember that the output of one function can be passed as input into another.

Global variables should be minimized as much as possible, but there are most likely going to be a few that you'll need anyway.  So don't completely prohibit them from your thinking.  Make sure you label them clearly.
