Do you have a tricky time getting started writing documents? Getting started is the largest challenge for most, if not all, article writers. Irrespective of the amount of articles we have written in the past, we still have difficulty getting the first line out on the screen. The very first thing I generally do to help get started is to scribble out an outline for my article. The outline gives a foundation and should make the rest of the process that much more easy. Get the outline complete and you will find that the rest of the article writing process is much simpler and faster.

Set aside about 15 minutes and just write whatever comes to your mind without revising. Think about some concepts you want to cover and write supporting points for those ideas. Review your notes and then band together your outline. When you arrange your outline bear in mind the goal of the article. Then home in on the main points you want to cover. As you come up with more supporting material, your outline will grow. After this, create an introduction for each of your sections.

At this time you need to come up with a end point. The conclusion should be supportive of all the main concepts in your outline. You now should have enough material for a first draft for your article. Your revision process should be a similar process to your brainstorming. Just write without revising and don't be concerned with perfection.

Understand that no-one will be reading your first draft. Your draft will later be turned into the article which may be the final product. As you move thru this process, you'll see the article form before you. Always refer to your outline and let it serve as the central point to your article. An outline doesn't only supply a plan for your article, it gives you a beginning point to work with.

Your article outline creation capabilities will be something that you will refine with some practice. If you continue this process, you'll be creating articles more successfully and swiftly in almost no time.
