    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell
    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough people
    are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question
    which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!
