  9. First off I would like to say awesome 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 mind prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?


    1. I also need time to think about what I want to say and how I’ll begin. This isn’t wasted time. Usually your writing will be clearer and flow better if you’ve given some thought to what you’re topic is and the direction you want to take it.

      One tip would be to think about what you’re wanting to write about prior to actually sitting down to write. You can do some thinking while doing other chores or tasks.
