This time of year can make you crazy. Post-pilot season leaves a deafening silence that can make you crazy. It can make you search obsessively for a focus, somewhere to put your anxiety and desire, or make you totally check out and sit on the couch eating ice cream and watching Netflix for two months straight. But none of that keeps you engaged in your artistry. You have to accept this time of year, this silence, and use it as an opportunity to take stock, take care of yourself and double-down on your commitment to the work…for its own sake.
