In my Intro for this article I started with why. Why did I write this article.
First paragraph, what....What makes a Lobster Blue.
2nd Paragraph, where and added some data dredged from the web under one of my keywords.
3rd Paragraph, When...sort of. Dropped some historical perspective into the article
4th paragraph, Who....some folks messed with the Blue Lobster population
5th paragraph, How....less Lobster predation due to a loss in the Cod population

As I was creating my notes I organized the facts into groups. When I completed the groups I checked for an overall idea and used that for the main idea of the paragraph.

When all this was done I sat down and wrote the article.
Most of the work was already done. I just needed to fit the facts in a coherent manner and make a case for my main idea which was, Blue Lobsters aren't really more common we are just seeing more because there are more being caught.

I hope the process I go through to make an article was helpful for you.
If I have a subject that I don't need to research, I will still check for keywords to see what I can include in the body of the article to help it rank.

I find that putting the ideas down in an outline format helps the writing go much faster. I don't always stick with the outline but I use it for a guide.

Here's a Link to the completed article:

On "Putting it all Together" page your link is broken (doesn't go to your article).

Besides that, awesome work on this training. I think this is going to serve as quite valuable for those writing content. Process is laid out in a very easy to understand way.

I don't know why the short-link wasn't working, dropped the long form in and it seems to be fine. Thanks for the head's up. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I was thinking back 2 years ago.( Anniversary coming up soon) and trying to figure out what my biggest frustrations were when starting out here. How to write an article was right up there at the top.
