I am writing my PhD in English. I normaly go through 3 writing processes: drafting, reworking and finalizing.
For today, I write in English from the beginning. Since my mental focus lies on narrative, structural and argumentative issues at the beginning my English is very bad at this point of time. Thus I spend a lot of time to correct and rearticulate it at the end. I wonder if it might be more efficient to start writing in my native language and just translate it at the end.
What is the most convenient/efficient point of time to use English when you write an English text?
