Proposal – structure and writing

Over the last few days I have been spending time on writing the proposal for my PhD. I have written quite a bit and read quite a bit more. I have a structure in my head and on paper but I have so many interlinked ideas that I find it all a little overwhelming. I know structure is a good thing but at the expense of lucidity?
