Do you ever feel that way? Wiped clean. Buzzed dry. Rolled flat.
Yea, that’s me today. And I’m not afraid to say it. I’m a writer, who for once, is sick of writing.
Gasp! I know, right?
But here’s the thing. I do it all day for my job. I do it after work for my freelancing. I do it on the weekends for my short stories and my novel. I even scribble down ideas during lunch break for this blog.
Seriously, is there something wrong with me?
I usually love writing. I always thought you can never grow sick of your deepest passion. But today—at 29 years old and feeling like a sap—I proved myself wrong.
Maybe it’s not the writing. Maybe it’s the constant working toward a goal that seems so far off. Maybe I’m just tired in general of seeing others float while I have to fight. And maybe it sometimes just feels a bit UNFAIR.
But then I remind myself that all writers struggle. Just like artists and musicians. Because if you want to live and breathe the art, that’s the only way you’ll ever truly make it.
But you know what? I think today, I feel like dancing instead.
So to heck with any more writing right now. I’m gonna turn on the music and boogie down…
MY QUESTION TO YOU: Do you ever suffer burnout? And if so, how do you get over it?
