FWIW, I recently wrote a paper in the history of philosophy (which, happily, was accepted!), and I did pretty much what Marcus outlined above.

I don't know if that was the most efficient way to go about it, but it worked just fine. The bulk of my real writing gets done in the editing process anyway (and, in this case, with the help of very kind and patient referees); I just throw up a skeleton paper first, and flesh it out later. I find it a lot easier to find and maintain my voice that way.
