One helpful device for writing and organizing thoughts, for me at least, is to name top 3 things I want to say in each section. I do this when I write sermons, well, not always. But when I am stuck, I ask myself what is the top 3 things I want to communicate to church. And when I’m stuck on a paper, I try to name top 3 things I want to make sure to say in each section. Why 3??? 3 is just the number of things my brain can “see” or handle at once, LOL. I am certain that others might be capable of creating 4 or 5 point sermons or papers!
