The Struggle Between Burnout and Inspiration

My mind is in the middle of an intersection at the moment where they forgot to install a traffic signal and there’s been a massive pileup. I’ve done little but edit all year and it’s worn me down. A couple of days ago I finished my editing pass on Torment Surfacing and ran headlong into burnout.

For someone who’s always forging ahead this is the worst news. I’m driven and unrelenting when it comes to my writing (yeah, okay, so that’s probably some of the issue).

To be more precise, I’ve just finished a month-long edit, am about to launch into planning for NaNo, the weather outside is making an unseasonable plummet (snow, anyone?), and I feel like I could sleep for a month and it wouldn’t be enough.

I’m hoping this is post-project fallout and not something more serious. For now, I plan to take it easy for the rest of the month. I’ll probably do some light editing on a short story or two, but nothing too serious.

Yeah, right.

About Ontyre Passages

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making.

In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
