    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!

      Hi Sylas – if you are finding your thoughts are racing an ‘blocking’ you just write down your thoughts. By doing this you are clearing the clutter and centering yourself as a result. Let the words flow and do not over think it. It will become more natural as you practice this. Good Luck
