That sounds familiar.  

“I could be better. I can make it work better and I’m trying to teach myself more discipline because when you have children and you are an artist, you already have more than fills a day. I would also like to have friends, hobbies, maybe read a book sometime.” From How To Be Prolific, an essay/interview with Joss Whedon.

At the Irish premiere of Much Ado About Nothing, the moderator said to Joss, “So you finished the biggest movie in history and then immediately turned around and filmed another one in twelve days. I think the real question here is, What is wrong with you?

“Workaholism,” Joss said. “There’s no known cure.”

I would like to use all of this to say SEE? IT IS NOT JUST ME. That quote above, Jesus, that could be me. Every word of it could be me.

He's a bad role model :-)

I have absolutely no idea what he's talking about. None. Not a clue.
I have to run over to school, now. I'll think about it more, when I get back.

I can't speak for you or Joss Whedon, but I am pretty sure about myself in regard to this: if I give myself downtime, things go dark and horrible pretty quick. Worst depression I ever had was a few years that I simply had nothing to apply myself to outside of my day job (which is occasionally creative but... very occasionally) and long story short if there's nothing else to crawl into I crawl into my own head and nobody wants that. Nobody.
