Go look at some open source engines if you want to get into that field. There is a lot involved and just saying 'I think I know' probably wont be enough to create a full featured engine.

Starts mall and add onto the engine as you progress. Don't try to do it all in a day or all at once. Focus on a single feature or feature set and finish them individually or you probably wont get done ever.

Yeah, like he said. And also, if you don't want to make your own game engine, use an opensource one.
I recommend you taking a look at idsoftware's id tech 1 engine (Wolf 3D. Doom, Doom2, Hexen, Heretic etc.) if you are making FPS.
There's also other game engines aswell, look here for more.

And once you get good enough, create your own logical style of programming. So you can create an Engine that is unique in infinite ways.

Writing a Game involves fair amount of mathematics, physics and AI usage.
First you should start modding other games. then try to create your one own..

As many people who actually make games will tell you write games not engines , this is especially true if you are a beginner , you are much more likely to lose interest and give up working on a boring engine than you are a game you enjoy. so make your engine include things that the current game you are working on needs , dont worry about expanding it for future games. chances are you will be able to reuse large parts of your code with small modifications anyways.

and the "engine" controls everything , updating positions ,AI , input, physics, drawing, and all their subcategories. once you actually start programming you will realize how much you have to worry about and correlate
