    clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however

      Hi, Marcos,

      Thanks for the kind words. Writing is a struggle for me too. And yet it works so well to help us think clearly. To center myself and get ready to write, I’ve become a fan of what’s often called “mind maps”. There are fancy computer programs to do them, if that’s your thing, but I prefer pen & paper.

      First, in the center of your paper, write a couple of words about your topic. Draw a circle around it. Then jot down all your thoughts about that idea. Spread them around the paper. When you see a connection betweeen 2 ideas, draw a line between them. If you have sub-ideas, list them under the word that prompted you.

      Write fast. When you feel stuck, draw circles around those categories around the page. If you are a visual learner, you can color in the circles that are related or use pictures to represent your ideas. For me, this approach lets me capture all those ideas that are floating around before they disappear like soap bubbles. It also helps me pick the best ideas to focus on.

      If you want to see examples, search for “mind map” images & descriptions.

      What do you write about, Marcos?

      Warmest wishes for 2016,
      Dr. Susan
