The easy way is to develop your code as a notebook and then use the 
AutogeneratedPackage option to create the .M file each time you save the 
notebook. I don't like to write .M package files directly because all 
the special characters have to be spelled out in such an ugly way - 
inevitably, since Mathematica uses so many extra characters.

You can test your code while it is in the notebook and only use the .M 
file with working code in it.
