Default trying to learn basic music theory so i can become a songwriter....

ok, so i've been self-teaching myself music theory and piano in order to start writing my own songs.

i understand scales, chords, the diatonic chords of a scale... but i can't seem to get what makes chord progressions sound good...

like... is there a certain pattern that usualy sounds good? like, a minor chord, major chord, augmented chord... or w.e.

and how do you match a melody to a chord?

i'm just so lost in how to actually write songs... i understand all the theory so far...
