If you are trying to do anything creative - writing a novel, making a movie, programming a computer, or writing a technical guide - you can get overwhelmed and get "writer's block".
A good way to work on projects like this is to start in the middle!
Create building blocks (i.e. functions, scenes, or actions). Then, build your project level by level by adding front and back stuff.
For example, to write a technical manual for a radio from the middle out:
1. First define and write out each function.
2. Group functions and add writing before and after them to create sub-sections.
3. Add stuff to front and back of sub-sections to build chapters.
4. Add introduction and conclusion around chapters to make manual.
