He doesn't expect anything he types to make sense yet, but it's important to get something on the screen. He then revises or, more often, replaces those paragraphs over and over until he's satisfied that he has his lead (in journalistic circles, the opening of the article). At that point, he's off and running.
Different story with me. If I had to feel good about the first paragraph before moving on to the second, I'd never be able to complete a story.
