  1. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if
    you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your head before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out
    there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    hints? Appreciate it!
