hope this is the right forum for my wordpress question, I am a newbie to wordpress, I know the very basics and want to get as much real world experience in writing wordpress themes, converting html to wordpress and learn as much as I can, what is the best way to go about it, I've read a couple of books and listened to tutorials. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I advise you to take a look at the sitepoint ebooks. There not free, but great value!

well, then just go for it. I also learned it that way.
maybe you can start with a basic tutorial and then create your own theme.
that's the best way to learn.

Trial and Error. Set up a site on your local machine and just start playing with it. If you're on Windows XAMPP will do the trick. On Mac, look at MAMP.

I think if you want to create a new wordpress theme you should learn not only html but also mysql and css also . There are many good web site for learning html, mysql and css.
You can get help from google search engine for find out tutorial web site.
