This is how I deal with it:

Lots of toys in my cube, good cd's, sanity breaks, days when I work from
home (generally play during the day and work at night), making an effort to
interact with people outside of my department so I make contacts in the
company and have a little social time too!

If it's the actual work that makes you crazy, talk to your manager and see
if you can get involved in projects that aren't necessarily traditional
technical writing. I like working on sales presos with the sales reps which
gives me more of a creative outlet than dry writing all of the time.

I love the art of technical writing. But I go absolutely nuts sitting
in a cubicle and technical writing all day! Can anyone give me any
advice on how to cope? Does anyone else experience this problem, or are
most technical writers content with the work style?
