    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Thank you!

    1. I usually just sit and type whatever comes into my mind. It is not a time for worrying about what you write or how, but just to jot down thoughts. Once I have done this, I will go back and rework what I have written.
