Are you there Mojo?

Hey Jet! is that my MoJo?
Are you there Mojo?
Have I got it back?
It's been nearly two years now since I started to lose it and for the past year I almost totally forgot that it ever existed.
I only blogged twice.
In a whole year!
Of course I didn't quite have total writer's block, I still wrote.
But not for fun.
Not just free writing for the hell of it.
Why did it happen?
Still not quite sure.
Did I just get bored? I don't think so; I just couldn't write. All these words and images and sentences got stuck in my head and they couldn't or wouldn't come out. The just repeated themselves over and over and became like sticky mud that I couldn't wade through. I attempted to write - I hate attempting anything. I wanted to do!
I tried so hard but then it all fell apart - a bit like me.
The harder I tried, the more ridiculous the words sounded as they splashed on the page.

Higgledy piggledy 
splish! splosh! splash!

They didn't make much sense and then I got angry and frustrated and I thought:

Give it a break.

Give it a rest.

Slow down.

And then life whizzed by and I thought about it, and thought about it, and then slowly started to  write again.
Not for me but for others hoping, praying and crossing my fingers that by doing so I would find my voice again.
It's a bit rusty.
Not sure how it sounds.
But willing to write again  however it sounds is good enough for me!

I would say, stop worrying how it sounds and just write - you'll soon get back into the swing of it. (Not that I've been posting that often recently - so who am I to say?)

It is lovely to have you back (but yes I also know exactly where you are - sometimes you just need to start tapping out the words and see where it takes you)
