First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that
I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had
a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!
