    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!

      Writing is a practiced discipline similar to exercise but of the mind. Creating a routine that supports and gets you focused is the key.

      When I want to write, there are couple of habits that I do beforehand:

      1. I will ground and centre myself (doing any of the Mindful exercises 1-10 can do this)

      2. I will usually read 1-3 short articles to get my mind in the flow of grammar, style and structure. That usually takes me 5-15min

      3. I’ll brainstorm some topics (or have them prepared already) and chose one

      4. Depending on your style of writing – whether you breakdown content/chapters etc I’ll start writing points down and then build them into paragraphs/chapters

      5. I’ll usually write 30min and then have a quick reset break with a short walk/coffee/stretch for 10min and then back into another 30-45min stint

      The clearer you are in your structure, the easier it is for you to follow and build your writing stamina.. The other thing, if you find that it’s taking you 10-15min to get into your writing flow – that’s pretty good if you ask me but if you want to get the time down, try getting the time down to 7min then down to 5min

      Let me know if this helps!

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
