Blog Briefs: On Burnout, with Chris Lawson

In which a bunch of authors & editors are invited to answer the question: How do you deal with creative exhaustion?

Author Chris Lawson explains how his stories are so good (and rare): passion.


Creative exhaustion is my default mode. In recent years the only reliable way I have broken through is to have an externally-dictated deadline for collections I desperately want to be published in, and with a story waiting to be written that I felt passionate about.
