Blog Briefs: On Burnout, with Kaaron Warren

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

Kaaron Warren is a powerhouse writer. Still, I find her solution to burnout extreme!


I rarely suffer from creative burnout, and I think the reason is because, with a couple of kids, writing time is still precious. We just had the school holidays and I could not claw more than a few minutes a day at the keyboard, which means that first thing Monday morning, I fake a tear as the kids go to school and am raring to go. So, yeah. Have kids. Avoid creative burnout.
