As someone who goes through bouts of demotivation as well as gonzo productivity, I'll say this much: do find some time to do nothing. And I mean truly nothing. Nothing to do with your creative work. No writing, no editing, no socials. After launching 365 #4 on Saturday, I spent yesterday watching three great films and an episode of "Ironside" and it detangled my brain to a T. There is no shame in finding time to just pump those brakes and give yourself the space to breath and rekindle the fire. Return to your inspirations out of your love for them, and remember why you're doing what you're doing.
