When planning a big program it is always better to plan ahead rather than jump straight into it. It is a good idea to write down the functions of the program in the order you need to code them,in little 'blocks'. Even "draw" it if it helps. When actually coding it, use comments. Even if you don't think you need to, just use a line of 'slashes' to seperate your program into the 'blocks' you planned out. This also helps with editing your program, if you just need to change a certain 'block' or if you need to veiw the code for a certain block quickly. Doing these little things could save you valuable programing time and helps make the code look a little more professional
