Doing the same thing for a long time on high speed can make you burn out.
The key to succeeding in something you love is VARIETY.
This applies to so many areas in life: foods and diets, exercise, games, things to occupy and keep your brain healthy, reading, and writing.
Here are some things I have been known to do when I’ve burned out from writing or editing:
Become best friends with a soft surface such as a couch, chair, or giant pillow.
-I recommend some tea, video games, puzzles, books, or Netflix.
-Binge watch entire seasons of Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, Dexter, Phineas and Ferb, or How I Met Your Mother.
Go through caffeine withdrawals.
-Occasionally, I question my ability to lead a healthy life.
-Subsisting on coffee pots and aluminum cans can sometimes knock you flat.
Write something totally different.
-In one day, I wrote 15 poems, and over the entire week, I wrote over thirty (ignore the fact that most were awful).
-Find some writing prompts and write some flash fiction or something in a different or new genre.
-Go back to something you worked on a long time ago or forgot about.
-The light may burn your skin like an albino vampire with a skin condition, but it’s healthy and maybe even a good idea.
-Walking to your car doesn’t count. Or it does count. That depends on if being a hypocrite matters.
Curl up in a ball.
-On the floor, hugging your knees, possibly muttering to yourself about life, philosophy, and granola.
