This is the perfect way to break the fly right off the end of your tippet. You are casting, not cracking a whip. Let the line and leader unroll and feel the slight tug that tells you the line has straightened then start your forward cast. Actually, your backcast is the same as the forward one. You will get the hand of it.
Here is a site that might be helpful.
