Normally I write these blog/journal posts at night before I go to sleep, then I do a quick edit, schedule it for the next morning, and go to sleep. I then wake up and check them again before allowing it to publish.
Today’s is a little late because I fell asleep last night. I was super tired and didn’t even think about writing. Brain had already fried itself and there was no making me write a blog post.
Luckily, I had a decent night’s sleep, and I was able to sit down during my lunch hour and knock out some thoughts.
So why did I title this burnout? Well, I just wanted to make people aware of burnout. You shouldn’t try to kill yourself for your art. There isn’t anything heroic about it.
Take care of yourself, get plenty of rest, get exercise. Work hard, but don’t kill yourself.
