slightly late to the conversation, but my practice is slightly
different than what most people have written and I thought I'd kick it
into a new subject.

When first begining a project I find that it slows me down if I try to
automate the tests.  I get much more momentum by writing some very
basic exploratory code and manually testing the results.  This stage
usually doesn't last too long since as soon as I have a direction, I
write a test to prove that the desired requirements are met.
