Default Steps to take for root and from of LG-E973 Help?

Hi there all. I'm very new to the whole rooting experience.

I have been an avid reader for quite sometime but w my phone I don't know where to begin as for the e973 i get somewhat of a runaround via google.

Can someone point me to links on how to root, install twrp/cwm and the proceed to get Paranoid Android or another custom ROM on my LG?

In "dummy" speak please. Lol. Thanks and happy holidays!!
