    First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

    Cheers!
