Mojo Monday: Wild Mountain Gorilla

It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your creative spirits, buoy you up, help you get your mojo on, and nudge (or better yet, catapult) you into writerhead.

Q: Kristin, what would you be if you weren’t a writer?

Kristin: A gorilla scientist. I am, and always have been, slightly obsessed with gorillas. When I lived in Chicago, I used to walk down to the gorilla house at the Lincoln Park Zoo and watch them for hours. I’m equally fascinated today. I love this video. It puts me into writerhead.

Watch! This is incredible. (And yes, you need a little patience here. The really good stuff happens in the last two minutes.)
