I walk away for a couple days and come back. However, doing this has made me so behind I feel overwhelmed all the time.
I have thousands of comments and things to reply to and I feel like an ass because it takes me so long. I have no idea how you deal with most of your favorites and comments because you have thousands and thousands more than me...
Lately I am at a crossroads to what I want...here or anywhere else on The Net. I've pulled out of many groups (not only 'cause of "group abuse" but because I just don't care if I get faves anymore. Not really.) and have left StormArtists.Net and Flickr. Nobody on there cares a wit. Due to health issues (I'm morbidly obese with all the illness-related garbage that entails) I need to get off the computer PERIOD. Real Life calls to me. My inbox is INSANE with deviations. I have to just flush them without looking which is a real pity...I'm sure I'm missing some stunning art and photography. But I can't sit here and root out the deviations of THREE accounts. I have to turn the devwatch thingy off. So when I do get burned out, I just leave. I do have to check emails since I sell things on Amazon.com and eBay but other than that, the sucker stays OFF. Some of you guys may not know how emancipating that feels. To get outside and MOVE. Anything but sit for hours staring at a screen, be it a TV screen or a computer monitor. Sorry about the "preaching".
i'm burned out right now, and i just won a dd. In the past i've noticed that it parallels my photography routine. When i take more photos, i am more active. Right now, i barely had the will to thank for my dd
I end up taking a bit of a hiatus for a while sometimes a month or two. I usually go out usually do some reevaluation of things here and it always turns me back to DA. Usually reevaluation takes me out on some very interesting adventures finding new spots to shoot in as well as researching and sketching out new studio or location shoot ideas.
