how does one go about writing out a cell diagram?

first you write the anode oxidation with a single bar in between 2 substances in different phases, and then a double line to indicate a salt bridge, and then the cathode reduction with a single bar again in between substances that are in contact with eachother but are in different phases

Think of it as anode|what's happening in the reaction|cathode.
If you don't have a diagram, it's really best to look at the reduction and oxidation half reactions to see what to write.

Another thing that is important is that if you have different substances that are part of the reaction but do not have an interface but rather together in solution, you group them together with commas separating them. If you have both the products and reactants for the oxidation/reduction that are both aqueous, you also need to note that you used an inert metal as the anode/cathode.
