Writers block: web burnout?

I used to consider myself a decent writer. It was one of those things that I did well. Over the last few years though I can hardly seem to link two cohesive sentences together. Those last few years also seem to coincide with my entrance into working on the web. Does anyone have any tips for learning how to write again? [more inside]

Why the years between music/art/photo projects?

Why is it that freelance type creative people, like say musicians, artists, photographers, actors etc. tend to spend years between projects? Unless you're say a high-end music artist, it's economically infeasable. Signed bands usually have 2 or 3 years between albums. Yes, that's often to build up new material, but just as often that's not the case. What's the deal? Is there that much potential for burnout?

Helpdesk Burnout

Maybe this is midweek frustration speaking, but I am wondering if anyone knows what the average burnout/turnaround time is for helpdesk these days? Back in the day I remember hearing that it was about 6 weeks, but I wonder if other geeks like myself are putting up with more abuse for longer periods than we used to, as jobs are harder to come by these days. Google shows a lot of percentages, but I want to know how long people are sticking with the job before they run screaming from the building.
