It happens to everyone. Burnout from writing, drawing, blogging, or (insert hobby of choice here.)
Lately my work schedule has been exceptionally busy, stressful, and I’ve been working lots of overtime. Basically cutting into my “me” time, which means I come home, eat, talk to my hubby for a while, and then pass out. Rinse, repeat. Therefore no blog posts, guilt at not posting, and a small amount of just plain old not wanting to blog.
Its been about a week without blogging, and I miss it. Miss my friends here, keeping up on all the creative blogs I follow, and I really miss all the thought and hard work I put into posting. If something interesting happens to me or catches my eye during the day I file it away in the back of my mind for -post later. It gives me something to look forward to. Without that mostly I just have work, eat, and sleep. (Sad I know.)
I’ve applied for a couple of internal job postings at work. Not sure what the outcome of that will be, but I suspect I will need to put a lot more focus on work just to learn the new job (if I get it.)
With all this, I know I can’t keep up my previous schedule of five posts a week. I’m switching to something more manageable and will post a minimum of three times a week. As I can manage, I will post more frequently.
Anyways… I have been getting more involved with art again. For Christmas I got an Intuos 5 art tablet which finally enables me to get into some digital media. Below is my first attempt at one. Its… ummm… awkwardly proportioned and has a lot of problems…
But since it is my first I wanted to share it anyway. Just don’t make fun of me too badly.
