Quoted from arcademojo:
I have a few down months a year where I would hardly ever playing my own games or work on games.
Quoted from LTG:
Everybody has ups and downs and changes in their life.
There are times when you might need a break. To remember what about pinball you liked. And then concentrate on that. And one day you might recapture what about pinball made you happy.
I haven't really touched any of my own games since August. Prepping multiple games for the two shows I attend, plus the one I organized really wore me out this year. On top of that, I was doing repairs/maintenance on the side about once a week.
So, I was basically working on pins almost non-stop between March and August. It's probably going to be a little while yet before I feel up to working on my games again. But I also have another hobby that I've been keeping me busy in the meantime.
