Great post Amruta!

I've come to realise how important it is to have a writing process. Too often I've neglected one of those early stages.

Out of interest, where do you fit research into the process?

Excellent question! Research, self-study, and user-testing the process/product workflow is my pre-writing phase. The throwaway draft is the output of the research phase.

Makes perfect sense -- get the research done, then get the words out onto the page. Thanks!
