I came across this little application today which might help you find your feet

Widget Creator

which is designed to help newbie would-be widget developers. I've downloaded it but haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

Here's the blurb for it

I saw this app on The Unofficial Apple Weblog, but found it isn't much use to n00bs that don't know how to create scripts and style sheets. Someone needs to develop and app with prebuilt scripts that are easily adaptable. Just my 2 cents. ;)
