Never stop writing. Write everyday. Your thoughts and ideas, your plans and goals, your concerns and problems.
1- Writing everyday breaks the fear of the process of writing; the more often you do it, the easier it is to start.
2- Thoughts tend to have a temporal limitation. if you don’t substantiate them in time, they might be lost forever. Make sure you have a note pad though. writing on single pieces of paper is not much of an improvement from trying to keep all thoughts in your head. If you find yourself in a situation where you have no option but to write on a piece of paper, than make sure you stick it into your notebook later on.
3- This follows on point number (2): when you do a literature search and find a paper containing the needed piece of information, make a note on that paper stating how you came across it. Later on, you will not wonder why you have a Yeast paper in your cardiovascular research methods folder.
