MMO Development Lesson #20

It’s better to start with a great shell than a jumbled mass of crap. Okay, that wasn’t articulated well, but the point is this: If you are outlining a system or some content or whatever it is, don’t mash a bunch of random ideas together and hope they will work out. Instead, create a notes document in which you jot down all of your random ideas for whatever you are creating, then write a structured and cohesive document as the document. You will thank yourself later, because trying to revise a jumbled mess is even harder than writing something completely new (I tend to just wipe things clean and start over if I don’t have the notes doc).
