    Writing for 20 years non stop is quite an achievement. Perhaps you should take a rest and go through the normal grieving processes which we all have to endure, be it the passing of a dear one or a divorce. This time out is an essential healing space and downing tools, going walk about, or even a change of occupation can help. There is a school of thought which pertains to burying oneself in ones work, which is fine if you have a career and a temperament which allows this.
    As a creative, when big emotive issues are going down, I take me to the windswept seashores and meditate upon the systole and diastole of the heart beat of the ocean and mother earth..I do scribbly almost autonomic sketches which keeps my artist alive, and take blessings on the wind.

      You’re right. Maybe I just need to chill a bit and let the pain of losing a loved one sink in versus thinking I can go back to my regular life without it having any effect on my work. Thanks for your comment. It helps, Erica
