How to recognize an obsession

It’s 11:07pm.

I’m cutting it close today.

But I’m no less enthused.

Even though I’m half asleep I still feel like writing. I’m wondering whether I’ve passed into obsessive territory. How do you recognize an obsession?

The easiest way is to look at the language you’re using. Your thoughts betray the type of relationship you have with your chosen object of affection.

A thought experiment I’ll have to continue another day. I’m no longer writing with my eyes open. I must abort.
