    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which 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 have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
    out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Thank you!
