Very true. I particularly liked Step 2: Start writing. Even if you don't start at the beginning, at least you have something to look at and to build on. I can also attest that it's useful advice to write even when you don't feel like writing. You may start out slowly and have to force every word, but eventually, you do get so into it that it's hard to stop.
All in all, very good advice and a good article.

All good ideas. Another thing to keep in mind is if you get ideas on the spur of the moment, it might be good to buy a mini tape recorder, so if you're somewhere where you can't write stuff down (the car, taking a walk, the mall, etc) you can get the idea down in some form.

Kudos on step 2! I often come up with an ending for a story first an build a fanfic around it.

Very good article! I should have read this a long time ago!
I find that starting with a scene is very valuable. If I have a scene, even one late in the story, it gives me motivation to write and a standard to set my other scenes against.
