    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind
    in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

      Some days are better than others for me, but if I’m having a hard time focusing, I don’t allow any other tabs open except my writing, and then I just start typing, knowing that I’ll have to edit–sometimes a lot!, but as I start accessing the creative part of my brain, the writing begins to flow, and often, it turns out to be much better than I expected. Another thing that helps me is to end my previous writing session with a note to myself right on the document of what I want to write next–just a bare-bones sentence or outline, but that gives me a specific spot to start. Other times, if I’ve neglected to do that, I will read over the last page or two that I wrote the day before to get back into the flow, and then jump on from there. And thirdly, sometimes it helps me to think about my current writing project off and on through the day, “pre-writing” in my head, running “what-if” scenerios (for fiction) or pondering ideas, if its for my blog.

      Hope that helps a bit. Happy wiritng!!!
