    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in 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 before writing. I’ve had difficulty
    clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!
