I’ve not been in much of a writing mood today (or yesterday) for that matter. After talking to a good friend today, she said, “There’s going to be a full moon tonight, that’s probably why you’re feeling weird, out of sorts.”
Maybe. But then I did a little digging and it seems that a full moon doesn’t have that much affect on our moods and/or behavior. You’ve heard the myths about how there’s more crime, people are prone to more “accidents,” animals act a bit strange and things of that nature. According to the article from Live Science, “The majority of sound studies find no connection…” that a full moon has any affect.
The article implied one link could be that the light of that big fat moon keeps you up so sleep deprivation could have something to do with all those accidents, bitchy moods and just a general feeling of malaise. Maybe.
There’s usually always a full moon in horror movies and the flip side of that, in love stories. Remember the movie Moonstruck? All that crazy romance inspired by that Bella Luna.
Whether it’s correct or not, I’ve been in a funk, so what the heck, I’m going to blame it on the moon.
