This is how I understand the present simple:

Form – Subject + Form 1 of the verb 

Example:

I write.

I do not (don’t) write.

Do you write?

I can use it to express habits and routines, likes and dislikes, universal truths and generalizations (facts), timetables and schedules.

Examples:

Maxine gets up at 4 every morning.

I prefer tea over coffee.

The earth goes round the sun.

Exams start at eight.
