Writing is a recursive, not a linear process. Writers do not simply finish a rough draft, then revise it, and then edit it in the tidy three-stage process commonly taught in school. They might, for example, make several different starts at the same writing task, then revise it, then learn from these revisions that they need to do more drafting, and so on.
Your goal is to generate enough material to locate your best options. Tips for Managing the Writing Process: Start anywhere that gets you going. The writing process is nonlinear.
Very few writers simply begin at the beginning and write straight through to the end. Sometimes your best bet is to write individual paragraphs and then arrange them later.
Allow yourself to write a crummy first draft if that is how you work best. Get something on paper before worrying about what others might think of it.
If you draft on a computer, try not to hit delete prematurely. Instead, rename each of your drafts.
Hang on to false starts; they may help you later. Postpone anxiety about grammar and spelling and style. You can revise and correct your draft once you have given yourself the opportunity to discover what you want to say. Know that what works for one writer might not work for another.
There is no one right way to conduct the writing process.
Some writers need to outline; other writers need to write first and then might use outlining later to figure out what is going on in their drafts. Some writers absolutely must write an introduction before they can move forward. Others need to jump in elsewhere and write the introduction last.
