I've Lost My Mojo!!!

No comments:
Yes, it would appear that I have indeed lost my mojo!  That is to say my motivation, my enthusiasm, if you will.  For everything...! YIKES!  Life seems to have ground to a standstill.  This is not good!

I don't know exactly why this has happened.  It could be because I Don't Bounce Back The Way I Used To having recently been on a trip to British Columbia.  I'm not unhappy, no depression, nothing like that.  I always enjoy writing of course, but seem to be unfocused at the moment.  It's not just the blog either; I was so excited to finish the first draft of my novel finally, but that currently sits neglected too.

It could be that it has evaporated in the heat!  Halifax has been hot and humid for the last month and a half; and while the warm, sunny days are great, I find the humidity draining and get really tired.  So perhaps I have snoozed my mojo away!

What I did discover was that the original article was written by Frank Kaiser, in 2000, for his website  It is different from the popular Rooney-attributed version that does the Facebook rounds, and I have to say I like Frank's version better, so I am 'borrowing' that instead:
