Since you're writing a story, you should figure out what sort of planet you want first. Then we'll help you figure out the parameters. There are many ways to explain any number of common or rare combinations of physical characteristics. If you want a fast rotation, claim an impact from one direction, if you want a slower rotation, claim an impact from another direction. If you want a similar gravity, keep it like earth, or make it bigger but less dense, or smaller but denser. If you want seasons give it a tilt or, less likely, give it an eccentric orbit. If you don't want seasons, give it little tilt, and then you may have static latitudinal variations. If you want moderate climate with/and/or/without seasons, give it lots of surface water.
