-you talk to your characters.... and they answer back.
I do that. xd The best part is mentioning it to the family and getting weird looks.
that's one of the best parts, seeing the looks on people's faces as you have a conversation with your characters outloud, that gives me an idea for another symptom that i'm guilty of,
-while talking to your characters you suddenly burst out laughing from something funny they said and get weird looks from all on-lookers.
-reality becomes known as "The Scary Place"
-you give up writing for lent
-and fail pathetically
LOL Oh wow... I couldn't even attempt that in all honesty. My cousin gave up sugar for lent once (there is sugar in EVERYTHING, btw)... THAT was more plausable than my giving up writing for lent. I wouldn't make it ten seconds. xp

- You bought a scuba-diver's notepad so you can write when you go swimming.
- Your calendar/dairy is taking blurb format.
