    First of all I want to say superb 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 mind prior
    to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thank you!
