When one's life consists of spending every waking moment on fictionpress and fanfiction, you know you're a bit of a geek - at best a hopeful writer - but at heart a geek.
When one becomes slightly nocturnal, staying up until 1AM to read and write said fiction, you know you're becoming slightly obsessed.
When one starts to look like a vampire because of sunlight deprivation, it's time to stop.
And when one has completely run out of ideas and begins writing about a cup, a white cup with an orange stripe whilst staring at said cup, you know you've gone insane.
When one starts writing about writing about said cup and mumbling about cups taking over the world, people start to give you weird looks.
When one actually publishes said writing, you know you're desperate and bored...completely bored.
