With the increasing speed and capacity of answer set solvers and showcase applications in a variety of fields, Answer Set Programming (ASP) is maturing as a programming paradigm for declarative problem solving. Com- prehensive programming methodologies have been developed for procedural and object-oriented paradigms to assist programmers in developing their programs from the problem specification. In many cases, however it is not clear how, or even if, such methodologies can be applied to answer set programming. In this paper, we present a first and rather pragmatic methodology for ASP and illustrate our approach through the encoding of graphical puzzle.
