    What I want to know is why I should care? I mean, not to say that what youve got to say isnt important, but I mean, its so generic. Everyones talking about this man. Give us something more, something that we can get behind so we can feel as passionately about it as you do.

    They are verry convincing and can certainly work.
    Nonetheless, the postrs are very short for novices.

    May you please lengthen them a little from net time?
    Thanks for tthe post.

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested
    to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time 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 wasted just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Thanks!
