I mean sort of like if you watch a good movie a ton of times and then you get bored of it so maybe you put it away for a few months, watch a lot of different movies and then eventually you'll really want to watch that movie again.


I watched 'Arsenic & Old Lace' between 1 to 3 times a day for about a year. Isn't that weird behavior? I always knew there was something 'wrong' with me. No, correction. I never thought anything was wrong with me. I just knew I was different!! !! !! !!

I've also listened to the same song several times every day for about the past 5 years (Stars Of The Lid's Artificial Pine Arch Song - alien music - the way I need it).

I know exactly what you mean. My main interest is writing, or I guess I should say my story ideas. If I burn myself out on one I eventually get a new one. Right now the one I'm on is dying down, partially because I'm thinking about it so much and partially because it's related to issues that are making me feel conflicted. If my interests die down I start to feel depressed because I think about my ideas to distract myself from stress, my over-empathizing, and other things.

Anyway, I guess try not composing for a while, like other people said. Let the field lay fallow.

Hello everybody.

If you did not know I have quite the "special interest" for music (specifically composition.)
As of late I've been feeling less and less motivated to compose music and I'm worried I might be losing my interest.
I feel like I'm nothing without my music and really don't want to give up but I don't know how to fight this lack of motivation.

Please help me.

Are you suffering from depression? That'll make you lose interest in everything!
