My Mojo Has Been Kicked out of The Building

No matter where I seem to browse on the net lately, there is always reference to this book.
Everywhere! It seems to pop up in the strangest of places. Pictures, comments, chapter reflections. So I started thinking that perhaps the universe was telling me something... "Hop off the net and do some art!!!" No - actually - it was more like "Buy me!" and so I did!
I'm eagerly awaiting her arrival and will let you know if she in fact lives up to her reputation!
If you live in OZ - then check out the bookdepository next time you want to buy a book. They ship FREE worldwide, and most times it's cheaper than buying in Oz. And here's a great little quote I pilfered from Patti's blog - which is just so apt for me right now (and may quite possibly be my life long live-my-creative-journey-by this-quote)...
"we should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. action always generates inspiration. inspiration seldom generates action"

Isn't that just the very thing you need to get off your butt and create? All this talk about my mojo leaving town - that's it! No more mojo bojo crap from me! I think I hear my 2009 mantra calling my name...


  1. Great post Donna, and I absolutely agree with that quote and you, I have always found that getting off my butt generates inspiration, not the other way around at all! Thanks so much for your comment on my video too :D

  2. I'm so glad because it brought me to see your beautiful art!

  3. Thank you thank you thank you thank you. I so needed that.

  4. I am reading this book now. Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  5. Yay for you Donna!

    A friend of mine calls it sitting down and 'making a mark' - once you start, all sorts of interesting things appear on the page.

    Another book you must read, if you haven't yet, is 'The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron. This was what got me started a couple of years ago.
