How to get your writing started when you can’t get going

If you’re writing a complex business document, it can be difficult to know where to start – so you don’t. And then you end up writing in a panic.

So here are three tips to help you to get cracking:

1. Organise your information into categories and give those categories headings.

2. Use the headings to provide a roadmap through the document for yourself.

3. Start with the easiest section – you don’t have to start at the beginning.

Remember – a “bad” start is better than no start at all. Put down the perfectionism and get it roughly into shape. You can polish it in subsequent drafts, but getting it mostly there is your aim when you start.
