My words are gone

I seem to have lost my voice.
There is nothing wrong with my throat or vocal cords, but I can't write, my words are gone.   I know there are stories, messages topics, but they're stuck somewhere far inside.
I have struggled a lot to make the last few blog posts,  searching inside a huge void, looking for words, feeling that every letter, every sentence was a fight with my mind.  And, I've ended up with something very close to complete nonsense.
What is worse, is that my writing project, the one I've been working on for years and been committed to for the last 7 months,  has apparently hit the wall.  I haven't touched it in over a month, and I have no idea about what to do with it from now on.
I don't like this at all, and I can just hope that my voice will emerge again.
Have any of you ever experienced this disappearing of words?  A "writer's block"? 
If yes, please tell me it will pass!  


It's my New Year's wish...

  1. Den kommer tilbake...når noe treffer deg så hardt at ordene igjen flommer av seg selv. Inspirasjon er undervurdert. Men det må være den riktige inspirasjonen. Den som treffer de innvendige strengene som gjør at ordene og setningene ikke trenger å konstrueres. De bare er der. Kanskje det er noe nytt på gang inne i deg. Noe som trenger litt fred og tid til å modnes mens du hviler takene og fokuserer på helt andre ting i en liten periode. Hvem vet? Det kommer i alle fall tilbake. Ingen grunn til bekymring! Klem og godt nytt år.
