    do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing butt it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Thank you!
