I approach these things in a shotgun manner to start off with.

I write all my scattered thoughts down as they come to me, hopefully all on the same piece of paper. (usually lots of bits that I carry around as the day or week goes on but hey, I try)

Writing them down seems to make things more concrete and less abstract, disorganized and scary. I keep thinking that I’ve forgotten something, refer to the notes and viola!

When I get tired or sick of thinking about all of these things, I put it away for a day or so then come back to it when it’s not so exciting.

For some reason after it’s all written down, my brain works slower and I can begin to organize.

I list and relist quite a few times but from the outset I give myself a time limit, otherwise this can go on forever.
