Does grief inhibit creativity?


I've been grieving for my mother for the past year and have written very few hubs. Can anyone advise me about becoming creative again after a loss?

    Caged soul: I love that handle. Thanks for your insight. I have been working on a novel since just before my Mom passed. That's going pretty well. But I used to have ideas for hubs bursting out of me and recently I'm panning for them. :)

    Thank you for this. That day is getting closer for me, I think. My husband lost his father unexpectedly in 1993. We finally smile first at his memory but usually there are a few tears still.
