Comic: Over-Editing And Submission Avoidance Support Group


(Edited March 27, 2018: I have modified the comic because although some in the OCD community liked the original "Obsessive Compulsive Editing Disorder Support Group" comic, some found the OCD reference hurtful. I apologize to anyone who was offended; it was never my intention. - Debbie)

To writers out there: so 'fess up. How many of you out there can identify?

I began writing my book in 2001, finished in 2009, and have been repeatedly editing it ever since. I finally decided to self-publish in serials so I couldn't go back and make more changes once I'd reached the end. I've had to add in smart phones and other technologies that didn't exist when I first started writing/editing.

Hi Debbie,

First off, I came across your site and wanted to say thanks for providing a great OCD resource to the community.

I thought you might find this infographic interesting, as it shows detailed information about the social signs of OCD to look for, and has proved to be a great hit with our readers: http://www.healthline.com/health/ocd/social-signs

Naturally, I’d be delighted if you share this embeddable graphic on http://inkygirl.com/inkygirl-main/2014/11/7/comic-obsessive-compulsive-editing-disorder.html , and/or share it with your followers on social. Either way, keep up the great work Debbie!

All the best,
