    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do
    not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
