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 curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
suggestions or tips? Cheers!
