    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know
    how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
    out. I do take pleasure in writing however 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!
