This hasnt really happened to me in quite some time but lately I feel like Im suffering from what may be the geek equivalent of writers block. I dont really know how to describe it other than a lack of inspiration, I just lack the desire to write code. Maybe its the artist side of me that takes over too much.
Now after a few hours in the morning of checking email, catching up on the Coldfusion feeds and some good ‘ole Digg Technology news. I can finally ‘make’ myself start coding. Although I have to feel that Im not doing my best work since Im forcing myself to sit here and code.
I work from home and I have been putting in about 12 – 15 hours a day over the last week and Im almost certain that is whats causing it. I have so many things I want to work on right now but I just cant seem to make myself do it though. Im working on my first FarCry site for one of our clients and thats pretty cool because Im exploring something new and Im learning. I have so many things that need to be done on Trac_Fu, I have another great idea that I want to code up and submit to Ben Nadel’s CFUnited contest. But it seems like every 30 minutes Im jumping out of my chair to take a quick walk through the house or find an excuse to do something other than work.
Please tell me Im not the only one who deals with this sort of thing. What do you guys do when you get that feeling of just not being inspired?
