you don't say for which Linux, and your profile says ubuntu and centos which use totally different package structure.
So please say to which one your question applies.

At first you should actually write a program. If you have handled that come back and ask again. When writing software you don't start with packaging, that is the last step.

What program would you like to develop? If you have in mind some admin tasks, a shell script would do. Again you have to be more specific what you have in mind.

Thank You all for your advices. I have plans to build an application for multimedia which isolates background score from song. Started working towards it.
