“Create! Call it good! Rest!”

Glennon makes some good points here.  Creatives are a funny bunch, and we do tend to get weary.

“You hang around your art.  You follow it around and make sure everyone is being nice to it. When someone comments negatively, you argue.  You defend your art.  You become your art’s lawyer, or its babysitter, or maybe its secret service agent.  THAT is what’s making you tired. Because you are not a lawyer or babysitter or armed guard, you are an artist.  You have taken on too many jobs, Jaded.  No wonder you’re exhausted.”
