First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which
I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!
