Do you ever get tired of writing?

    Do you ever get tired of writing?

    To write for HubPages, for example, requires new hubs constantly.  Many of us also write for other online writing sites and only earn pennies per day.  It is quite possible to get exhausted or even discouraged at times.

    I wouldn't say I get 'tired' of writing, but I do get discouraged and need breaks once in a while. It is hard to keep up with the rate of hubs you need to earn a profit but hopefully one day I will get there! I'm not giving up smile

    Never.  You don't have to have hundreds of hubs; you have to have good quality hubs.  You also have to participate and be active on the site.  For those who follow you, place value on that choice by visiting their hubs.  Writing is like an extra limb for me.  I love to read and write.

    I am a freelance artist and writer. I mix it up and don't get tired of either one. If all I did was write, I would definitely get tired of it. If all I did was art, I could handle that just fine. I am thankful that I do both.

    I'm new to HubPages, so I can't confess to being tired of writing already. However, HubPages is only one of a very many hobbies and obligations in my life, so I do occasionally feel weary and dream of a day or an afternoon where I can do nothing but lounge and read a book. Certainly, I have created this hectic schedule, primarily because there are so many things that I find enjoyable, but the idea of a simpler, less structure life has tremendous appeal.

    I love writing but time is what I lack. A nice income would be nice but I alas its not at that point yet - maybe never will be.... But writing can relax me and can be my escape from the  busy mum I am. I get tired....but not of writing!

    Yes I do get tired and discouraged occasionally, usually when I've tried to do too much or been writing on topics that need lots of research and concentration. When that happens I write an article on a topic that is completely different to what I have been doing, preferably on a light or Humourous topic. It usually clears my head and refreshes me.

    Yes, at times, but I always end up sitting back down in front of the screen. The key is to change it up as much as possible, in your day to day activities as much as your subject matter. To gain new experiences to write about we have to get out there and do stuff! So lets get out there and do some stuff and when we're readywe'll come back and write about it. Everyone needs a break from the same old monotonous routine now and then. Don't forget to treat yourself.

    I get writer's block quite often. I need to take breaks when I'm writing. Since I'm a SAHM, my breaks consist of all my chores throughout the day. While I'm doing m chores, I'm usualy thinking about what I'll be writing. Part of my problem is being a perfectionist. I could publish way more hubs, much more quickly, if I'd stop trying to get the hub absolutely perfect! lol

    Sometimes I need a respite, so I'll take a day and do something just for fun and then I can get back to the writing with a new spirit.

    I do not write for any other sites than HubPages, but I do get tired from that.

    The problem that I face is trying to break down my thoughts and ideas into something that people can enjoy while reading. I usually talk on a subject endlessly and it can get to be extremely long.

    I don't get tired of writing howeverI do take breaks from writing and do lots of other stuff. Luckily I dont need money from the hubs because its not much.
    I don't feel a need to write constantly for hub pages.When I get an idea I try to write it down, take photos, or do some research.And eventually it might become a hub. I enjoy answering questions and I do try to keep improving the hubs I have written.

    I only get tired of writing when I'm in school. It's just so hard to stay active the way I want to on HP and go to school full-time. I find myself only being able to produce 1 hub a week, which is discouraging because I want to do more but school has to come first.

    Never.  Wish I had more time to devote to writing, perhaps, I don't write as constantly as some others.  I propose that whenever tiredness sets in, it's time to take a break.

    Yes it's definately possible to get mentally and physically exhausted. This is probably more true when we are starting up and trying to reach goals and/or earnings. But I guess if you ask anyone who is starting up their own business - which writing on line can be - then they will tell you that the first year or more you do have to put in long hours, lots of hard work and keep going. So yes, there will be times when you do feel discouraged and ask yourself if this is all worth it? There might also be times when your mood is lower and you feel you dislike writing. But all this does pass and your enthusiasm will come back. If you are feeling tired/de-motivated you're probably needing to take even a short break away from writing to recuperate your energies and get your motiviation back. Also try to pace yourself if possible between sites when writing so that you don't burn yourself out.

    I don't, but that's because I write a wide variety of things.

    Sometimes I feel a little burnt out. I usually write poetry but to make money you have to write articles and that's a big switch so sometimes I just get a little overwhelm. But the funniest thing happens, whenever I voice my feelings out loud I all of a sudden stat writing really good. It's as if I made room inside me to write again.

    Not really, cuz I write when I feel like it and I don't when I don't.

    Always grateful that I did not join HP, with money in mind, I do not write per "requirements," by any one, at any time.  I'm afraid I'm unable to perform on demand, for my writing is only mine to give, to whom I wish, for the reasons, in my heart. 
    Humans get tired, weary, worn and sometimes listless.  Writers do not tire of writing, any more than we tire of living and loving.  But rest is imperative and a break from our muse, must be taken, now and then.
    Stalking and haunting the writer within, can become a struggle and we dare not feel a need to struggle for what we love most.  This will bring on the discouragement you mention....that may be mistaken for exhaustion of writing.....Just step back and breathe a while, give yourself time to refresh.  Do not mistake a writer's block for fatigue.....although they may feel alike, the difference is enormous....
    Close your eyes and free yourself from all dreary thoughts...just long enough to let your fire rage again.  Best of luck and success to you.
