First off I want to say great 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 head before writing.
I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
