Start with the last verse, and work backwards isn't a bad idea. That way as you go forward you are more likely to be heading into more familiar territory.

And it helps to be quick at making up a replafment for a line on the spot. Call it a variant... Well, that's how variants come into being, and often enough the later versions are better. That especially goes for your own songs, you rub off the rough edges that way.
