  1. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Many thanks!

  3. 945457 702238Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone! 791273
