I think I’ve lost my mojo

For the past few weeks I just haven’t had the energy (or drive) to really do any writing. I didn’t touch my book at all last week, and even this week I’m just not too enthused to do anything with it. That goes double for blogging.

So, how do I get my writing mojo back?

I’m going to go back to my roots: Poetry!

I fell in love with poetry in high school and started writing my own poems around the 10th grade. I wrote throughout high school and college, but then stopped. I’m not really sure why, but I think it is time to get back to it.

I was so excited to see the Writing 201: Poetry class offered through Blogging U. on WordPress. I haven’t been following the prompts, due to my lack of writing lately, so I am going to be a week or more behind everyone else. But, I’ll post my poems with the prompts as I finish them.

I am also starting an online Scrivener class this week. It is a Scrivener 101 course offered by Gwen Hernandez. I’m really looking forward to getting into the crux of what Scrivener can do to help me better organize my books.

So, long story short, I’m thinking of stepping away from my book for a week, or so, and focusing on some other things: poetry, crafts, some early spring cleaning. Maybe this will help clear my mind and help me get back into editing and rewriting my book.
