    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
