Grab a pencil immediately and start to draw your idea because if you don’t do that maybe you forget it after 10 minutes. Sketching is the best way to create your first and raw ideas. If you already have it in your nature then good for you but if you know you have some weakness in this part it’s better to take some time and practice.
