I personally prefer to take the story scene by scene. This makes the whole process of writing (which is huge!) and breaks it down into smaller portions.
And before you pen down you scene it would help if you can picture the scene inside your head. Do this a couple of times, refining all the while till you can clearly see every bit of the scene, the characters, their dialogue, the setting they're place in, the point of tension, the conflict that is driving the scene, etc...
Write down what you see... No editing!
Just write it out, you can always edit later. And you MUST edit only later. Your first draft--keep it yourself. Let it be raw and dirty and scattered... think of your first draft as a collecting sand in a bucket, you can build a castle out of it later on, but you gotta collect all the sand particles first without any judgement.
Hope that helps!
