A legend is a story that has been passed down through so many generations that everyone recognizes it. You can't really write one - that is, you can write a good story, but it won't become a legend for centuries. Even famous stories like The Lord of the Rings isn't considered a legend, but a work of fiction. Many legends also explain something, like how a natural phenomenon came to be, so most of them involve some sort of explanation that sounds a little silly to us in the modern era. Some examples of legends would be stories about ancient gods, the legend of Robin Hood or King Arthur. You might consider just writing a good story, and letting someone else decide if it could eventually be a legend or not.
