    Thanks Frank. The ideas are all simple/approachable, and that’s exactly what makes them so powerful. No need to reinvent the wheel here.

    Drawing inspiration from other sources continues to be one of my biggest methods. I have occasionally written some short fiction, and that’s where TV shows and YouTube comes in.

    Call me old school, but sometimes I revisit classics like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, The X-Files and (yes, really) Tales from the Crypt to get my brain started. These shows were full of standalone stories, many of them a bit silly but still great to inspire just about anyone.

    Take care ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks much Elvis!

    You mentioned really great tricks, which could certainly help avoiding a burnout!
    To be ohnest, that could work super to me as well – watching Tales from the Crypt to get my brain started ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Frank,

    Great tips and I agree it’s so easy to get burnt out as a blogger. I personally love writing my content in advance. This makes it easier for me to take time off if I am getting to a point where my body needs it.

    I also make it a point to exercise on a regular basis. I think it’s important to take care of your body. Like you said, sitting in front of your computer for long periods of time can lead to healht issues.

    I’ve also invested in a standing desk. This has definitely made it easier for me and I love it.

    Now I switch between my standing desk and working on my laptop.

    Thanks for sharing these tips have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great post. I have burned out mentally and physically from only writing day after day. Month after month. I kept telling myself I’ll stop when I finish 10 more pages, and then “well, I’ll stop when I finish the next 5 pages.” Ugh, I was delusional! I’m bookmarking your post to remind myself to be sure and enjoy life in-balance with my writing.
