Here's what I do to get started. Since I tend to agonize over writing, I
have had to come up with my own variant of freewriting. I start by taking
lots of vitamins. Then I make a short list of possible sections of what I am
writing, grab my trusty wind-up kitchen timer that makes loud clicking
noises, open Word, turn off my monitor, set the clock for an hour, and
smash out all of my thoughts in each of the sections as fast as I can
without stopping until the bell goes off. I usually come up with 10 pages
of pure garbage, but planning and drafting are usually easier afterwards.
