As I watched a scene of horror, a massacre, an act of mercy carried out by the character I had filled the shoes of for many days, a lump formed in my throat.
The emotions raised in me were unusual. You see, this was a video game. The killing was something
common, in fact in that day alone, I had probably carried out many virtual acts of atrocity.
You’d be lying if you said you don’t ever experience those uncomfortable, bad feelings.
In particular, I mean those ones you struggle to even admit to yourself; jealousy, rage, maybe even sadness. The fact of the matter is, these feelings can sometimes seep into the things we do, and when this happens we need to put them in check.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could all live in a world where we were constantly booming with ideas? Sadly, creative burn out is something that happens to us all, regularly. As someone who is trying to write a a work of fiction, I find it incredibly hard to stay motivated and keep on top of my writing goals.
