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

  2. Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thank you
