burnt out on gaming no but with writing and drawing yes. As for gaming I find it very hard to find a game that goes even as far as lv 3. on here I've played 3 games to completion no chs above lv 2. Most the time those never get a game. I'm in several games atm 1 dead. and 2 on hiatus and a few unknown status. I'm burn out on creating things that don't get used I have deleted 6 cha here and still have 3 that have never gotten a game.

also expierancing lots of players dissappearing even dms. kinda kills the mood for playing online.

Yes, in fact I'm only just now trying to come back from a period of prolonged absence. I guess it happens when I try to overstretch myself and I think I realise and accept that as far as online gaming goes, its so easy to take things on without stopping to think about what I can and can't actually do. And that's the hardest thing to do in the world because when it goes well you think you're invincible in that online space and then just take more and more on until you get to the inevitable crash.

How do you recover? In my case taking a long long stretch away to recharge the batteries and getting yourself in a state where you do believe you are capable of coming back, this time being mindful of what your limits are.

I tend to stick with a fairly* hard goal of 3 games, maximum, of which only two would I be GMing. I've realised that when I try to do more, even if I think I have the time for it, I invariably end up not showing up as much for one or more of the games.

*Occasionally I will dip into 4 games, but usually only if there's a slow posting rate for one, and at least one of the games is either wrapping up shortly or is intended to be a fairly short one-shot.

I could play 6-10 games easily write short stories and post pages of my books. And still make time to draw. All while playing stfc and watching DVDs.

But I'm a very active person. lol. lately though most my games seem to be 1 post every week, or 1 every month or 1 every 2-3 months. So the only burn out is all these forced build new chs and never use them cause no one accepts them in a game.

Also I'm just a player I hate dm ing. I can't stand not playing a ch. or the fact dm feels like work and your only working to me. So I stick to playing as it's fun..

I think thatís the key, to having a basic understanding of what you are capable of. Knowing and having those hard limits is the first part, but not giving into temptation after you have set those limits is equally as hard, if it more difficult. I can do probably 1 game GM, 1, maybe 2 games playing. I think doing more than that is opening myself up to a world of hurt. Starting something is the easiest thing to do online, actually following it up to completion is a 1000 times more difficult.
