    First of all I want to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head
    prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
