    First of all 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 know
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    Many thanks!
