You know you have become obsessed with writing when...


  1. You begin dreaming about the characters in your current project.
  2. You sit down to reread the last couple of pages of work and three hours later you have not only rewritten them, but you've added another ten to the pile.
  3. You start dissecting everything you read or watch in terms of character and plot development.
  4. Your fingers itch when you read the menu at your local restaurant because you want to edit the punctuation.
  5. Your keyboard no longer has any letters on it - they've all worn off - but you don't want to replace it because the keys are just 'worn in'.
  6. You've fallen asleep on your keyboard/notebook more times than you can remember.
  7. You divide your time in terms of writing goals (1000 words before breakfast...).
  8. Even if you've been out all day, you have to sit and write something before you can sleep, otherwise you'll just wake up in an hour to write anyway.
  9. You own more than three dictionaries.
  10. You never throw any paper out because you never know what you may have scribbled on the margins.
Add your own you know you have become obsessed with writing when...' to the list.
