Hobby

Need to get back into The Hobby!

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!

  1. I hear you, I’m going through the same thing myself at the moment. I usually try to mix it up painting something i havent had the courage or time to start yet. Or i just bum it on the couch feeling guilty im not painting. Right now its a lot of the latter.
