* It's currently unclear how Ian Flynn manages to get any sleep. At one point, he was the writer of five monthly books for ArchieComics at once: ''Comicbook/SonicTheHedgehog'', ''Sonic Universe'', ''ComicBook/SonicBoom'', ''Comicbook/MegaMan'', and the ''New Crusaders'' reboot. He has also written several one-offs in the ''Archie'' series, and was slated to write a ''Cosmo The Merry Martian'' reboot as well (though that seems to be shelved for the time being.) Add to that his personal forums were acting as a second job, leading him to shut them down in early 2016. That, with the cancellation of ''Sonic Boom'' and ''Mega Man'' being put on hiatus, has eased his workload a bit.

* ''Website/PlatypusComix'' serves home to ''four'' webcomics all written and drawn by Peter Paltridge: ''Webcomic/{{Mulberry}}'', ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'', ''Webcomic/PrincessPi'', and''Webcomic/FreeSpirit''. Additionally, he writes humorous articles for the site every other week or so. On top of all that, he compiles other people's comics and stories together with his own into the publication/e-paper ''[[http://www.bangpdx.com/ BANG! Magazine]]''.

* It was actually this reason that the ''VideoGame/{{Loom}}'' series was unfinished.
** It was more to do with the fact people had lost interest in making serious games because they weren't as funny as the other things LucasArts were working on.

** As of [[http://nebezial.deviantart.com/journal/--628450711 August 2016]], Sejic seems to have hit creator burnout. It turns out that working on multiple projects at his pace for ''twelve years'' doesn't come without a heaping dose of RealityEnsues. His health degenerating to the point where it's a struggle for him to even hold a pen properly made him realize he needed to pull back and take a break from at least ''one'' of his projects.

* By the dawn of TheNewTens, Creator/SethMacFarlane had three [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy prime]] [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad time]] [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow shows]] and a [[WesternAnimation/SethMacFarlanesCavalcadeOfCartoonComedy web series]] to his name, two of the former carried on into his recording a music album and writing/directing/starring in [[Film/{{Ted}} two]] [[Film/AMillionWaysToDieInTheWest live-action films]]. During the production of the second film, he also published his first book, a novelization of its screenplay. While it racked up an impressive resume that included [[RenaissanceMan just about every major job in show business]], many of his critics have said that this puts a strain on his creativity and is a huge factor in "Family Guy"'s SeasonalRot.

* Tarantino's buddy Creator/RobertRodriguez suffers from this. After ''Film/SinCity'' came out, he began talking about a pair of sequels filmed back-to-back with new original material written by Frank Miller. After Miller failed to produce (mostly due to his new love of film directing) the sequels hit a major snag and even Mickey Rourke publicly announced he wasn't waiting up. Then, after ''Grindhouse'' was released Rodriguez was not only attached to ''Film/SinCity 2/3'' but a ''Film/{{Machete}}'' feature film (which happened years later) and a remake of ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'' (which was dropped). The ''Sin City'' sequel only came out of DevelopmentHell in 2012. Once again, nobody believes any news regarding future Rodriguez projects until the cameras start rolling.

* Creator/RidleyScott is attached to [[http://www.movieline.com/2009/10/know-your-ridley-scott-projects-that-will-probably-never-happen.php at least 9 projects]] at the moment (one of those, the "[[Film/{{Prometheus}} Alien Prequel]]" was released in 2012, and the adaptation of ''Literature/TheForeverWar'' is certain to occur). And the man's 74 years old! Maybe he just wants to complete as many films as possible now that he still can.

* Video game designer Creator/{{Suda 51}} of Grasshopper Manufacture may be suffering from this. Not only is he is collaborating with HideoKojima on a ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'' radio show, but he is also developing a Kafkaesque game for the Playstation 3 called Kurayami, as well as porting TheSilverCase and Ward 25 to the Nintendo DS.

* Wrestling/BrockLesnar. He's gone from NCAA Wrestling, to pro wrestling, to football, back to pro wrestling in Japan this time, to MMA, back to pro wrestling, and then back to MMA. His issue isn't so much with getting bored, more that he goes where the money is
