  1. First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had
    a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
