Hi Oleks,

Great point! It is very important to ensure that you have all the materials you need and have done all the necessary research, before you begin writing your text.

In addition to Aliakbar's corrections, I just have the following suggestion:

1. create without being distracted by the search for the necessary informatio -and begin writing ("create" is correct, though it is not a very specific word in this context) without being distracted by searching for necessary information
