What do you do when the excitement’s gone?

Most everyone I know on LJ is into some sort of creative endeavor whether they are writers, artists or what have you. So I want to know what you guys do when the heady phase of dreaming and imagining has ended and you’re left with the drudge work of finishing projects. Or, maybe that doesn’t happen to you…if not, how do you keep it from happening?

Even though we’ve had a lot of successes with RDSP lately some days I feel ground down.
