For academic writing it is the former that is the main headache, i.e. coming up with the content, rather than putting it into its final shape.

Countable and uncountable nouns In this post, I try to explain what countable and uncountable nouns are. When I speak with native speakers of English they often tell me that the concept of countability in English is absolutely natural. “You simply know which noun is countable and which is not.” However, this natural feeling is nearly impossible to teach.
