Writer's Block

Ok....I am stuck here. I have lost my writing voice. I deliberately gave myself some healing and grieving time over the holidays and read my little head off. I currently owe myself reviews on at least 10 books but for some reason...I can't think what to say.
That is very unlike me! LOL
If anyone has any ideas about how to break this deadlock then PLEASE send them my way!!
Kiss Kiss Hug Hug
I decided tonight that I won't feel guilty about this but I will try and take each book and just start writing. When I come up with something worthy of an audience then I will post.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my new pic.
Here is the companion to it.

Hi Tamara - glad you gave yourself some time over the holidays.
You're right - don't feel guilty or beat yourself up, the words will come when they're ready.
This might be a bit of a goofy suggestion but...what about using a tape recorder (or whatever the more modern version would be) and just voicing your thoughts when you're reading. " i don't like the character of ....because" and putting them to paper later?

Hey Tamara. I am with Luanne. Please don't feel guilty. I wish I had some suggestions. I think Luanne covered that well too. Sometimes I just get myself into something that I really enjoyed to just get the stress out. Silly idea but I color in vintage books and that just takes me right back. :)

Tamara..u are as lovely as ever. Take as much time as you need to feel and be whatever you need to be. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I've been through this, although from illness not the terrible kind of grief you're still feeling. It will come back. The tape recording idea sounds terrific. Even if you only wrote or spoke a sentence or two, it might give you more ideas the next day when you read it or listened to it again. Glad you see you post something. I was beginning to worry. ;)

It is so nice to see you.. and the new pics. I am with everyone.. it is good to have you back and about the writer's block. Don't worry. Maybe just make a list... with Like..don't like... sorta like and start over.. maybe you will feel moved to write about something new soon.
