The clicking sound you heard most likely the starter solenoid engaging the starter. Only in this case it's failing to engage the starter. This is a classic symptom of a low battery. Here's why.
In a perfect world, when you turn the key to start:
If you don't have a voltmeter, what you need to do now is visit an auto parts store (not a shop). Most (in the hope of making a sale) will provide free testing of batteries and charging systems.
What you need is called a "Load Test" on the battery. It simulates the load of an engine being started. This will confirm the battery is good or bad.
Then with the car running, they need to check the voltage to the battery (they will know this). If it's not above +13VDC, the alternator is bad or not connected correctly.
And if it doesn't start, what better place to be?
Let me know what they and you find out by commenting.

The clicking noise is probably the starting solenoid. This means you have some battery voltage and the key switch circuit is working. The problem is either a weak battery, poor battery cable connection, bad starter motor/solenoid, or frozen engine. The voltage at the starter motor needs to be at least 8 volts with the key in the cranking position to turn the engine over. If you have a voltmeter on the dash, watch it while turning the key. Another way to check the voltage is to turn on the headlights. If they dim way down, your battery is weak or the starter motor is shorted or heavily loaded. If the starter motor is shorted or cannot turn because the engine is frozen, the battery cables will get warm. Make sure the engine is not frozen by turning one of the pulleys, or put a socket wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt. Sometimes the alternator brushes fall out and jam the alternator. This will also stop the engine from turning.
