I think I've lost my writing voice.  How do I get that back?

Sustained Silent Writing! Or "SSW," in teacher land.

I think I have flowers growing in my belly.

What are the rules of SSW? I'm gonna drink some tea and give it a try.

Just write about whatever you want for 20-30 minutes without stopping or editing or making any noise!

get away from people and go sit in the desert.

Read a really bad book.

I'd actually say read a really GOOD book. But mostly, you just need to make yourself write. Even if you don't like what's coming out, you need to make yourself do it every day. Or as often as possible. Also, be aware that you have more than one writing "voice" so the one you're experiencing now just may be new to the scene.

Good luck.

when you find out, let me know.

cause i've yet to get mine back.
