In your rough (first) draft, the most important element is C. Getting your idea down on paper.

When you are writing your first draft, the primary goal should be to capture your thoughts and ideas without worrying too much about the finer details such as spelling, grammar, or punctuation. It's more important to let your creativity flow and get all your ideas out before you forget them.

By focusing on getting your ideas down on paper, you can ensure that you have a solid foundation for your writing. Once you have completed your first draft, you can then focus on revising and editing to improve the spelling, grammar, punctuation, and other aspects of your writing.

So, in the initial stage of writing your rough draft, prioritize expressing your ideas and thoughts clearly and comprehensively rather than getting overwhelmed by perfecting the smaller details.
