I have a confession…
I’ve been out of the hobby for a few months recently. Due to a combination of factors including, but not limited to:
- New Pokemon Games
- Lack of commission work
- New Dragon Quest game
- Cardfight!! Vanguard stuff
- General mental health reasons
So, it’s been a while. But I think it’s time to try to restore my “Hobby Mojo” again.
I was wondering, what do you folks do when you’re not feeling the hobby? Is a few months away the best medicine or do you plough on through? I’d love to hear your tips and suggestions.
Personally, I don’t think you should force it. We’re in this hobby because we enjoy it (all for our own individual reasons, too). If it stops being fun, I believe that’s a sign that you should take a little time away to ‘recharge’.
It happens sometimes, I usually have a few weeks or months each year where my hobby interest dwindles, but then it surges back suddenly and I’ll be at the painting table every night beavering away again!
