The organization of one’s thoughts is the first thing that needs to be done at the start of writing a new project. Sure, there are writers who can wing it and wing it very well…even into a best seller. For some writers, however, there is a need to think things through or even outline the parts of their story in order to discourage the visitor called Writer’s Block and allow a steady flow of the story.
Organize first, then write. It works for the most part.
