  2. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question 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’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Thanks!
