Yes - so often writers write to get the ideas out of their heads ... but, if we don't style or craft those ideas in a way that is appealing, we won't have any readers. I like to think of what would happen if I were reading the article I'm writing - what would I get out of it. Instead of just getting words out, what would I take away? Good advice here, Kristina!
