Then the next step or the solution will come to me when I first wake up in the morning, when I'm driving, or even in the shower.

Whether you write by hand or on a computer, just begin. Don't worry about how it sounds or what it looks like, expressing your thoughts into words is the first step and the rest can come later.

My second piece of advice is to spend some time thinking about the organization. Another common hurdle is, "where do I start?" You may even write a few outlines before finding the right one. The writing process will be so much easier if you spend the time while planning. How can you effectively begin a journey without a map?(less)
