My brain: Why don't you check your Call to Action entry's metrics and comments? :]
Me: No, I have better things to do with my time.
My brain: D O I T : ]
Anyone else experienced this? The compulsion to check is actually I N C R E D I B L Y difficult to resist :'D It has never been this bad with my ongoing series: not even on launch day - after posting a new episode I can just walk away and not look at it - the compulsion to do so can always be drowned out by other distractions.
I don't think it's a contest thing either; I've entered a smaller comic contest alongside this one and I literally checked it once since posting it idk how many weeks ago I've also entered a board game design contest a few years ago where I drew a bunch of art, and I don't think I obsessed this much in the aftermath either.
