At some point I think we all suffer from a lack of motivation or a lack of tuits. Don't think that it's just you.

Sometimes the problem can be the simple fact that you're bored with looking at the same codebase over and over again. Try to find a new coding project (doesn't have to be Perl) that interests you and see if the spark comes back.

I recently saw a post on the Evolution blog asking for assistance. I was immediately interested and went off to find out more. While I'm no great C programmer, I had a lot of fun hacking away. None of my hacks went anywhere but I didn't really mind because I had my coding motivation back.

Take a look at Sourceforge or Freshmeat and see if there's a project that interests you. See if there's anything you can do to help out.

While YMMV, all I can say is that this helped me get out of my doldrums. So who knows? What have you got to lose right?
