How do I write a trading plan?

I have stuff in my head. Like the IB, and monitoring it. I use a 150 tick chart for entry's, and a 1000 BLB chart for my large time frame. I watch major support and resistance, and swing highs and swing lows. I use HH, LH and vise versa. I just do not know how to put this all together. What should I define first? Hope this makes sense to someone who went through this and got to the other side. I know I'm not explaining myself very well, and I guess that is part of my problem. It's in my head, but I notice that I do forget things, as silly as that sounds, I do forget really imporatnt things sometimes. Anyways anyone's help I appreciate.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Traders are very visual people. Post your Charts with all your bells and whistle indicators on it and you'll be surprise to all the opinions and advise you get on how to come up with a trading plan.
