Seriously, do all writers have OCD?

I live in a beautiful part of the Rocky Mountains, but the last few trips I've conceded to go on, resigning myself to losing writing time, I've taken my laptop and worked whatever hours I could, even while out in the woods. I mean really, what's wrong with this picture?
At least I did hit a major landmark last week. Almost one year to the day from starting what I knew was going to be a huge undertaking, I have finally finished the re-write of my novel. I am going through it one more time now with final edits based on comments from my group of very astute and ruthless reviewers and then it will head into the submission process - hopefully within the next month.
I hope to have some credits to attach to my query by then. I was notified last week that one of my short stories has made the short-list for an anthology coming out soon. I won't know for a couple of weeks if it gets cut or makes the anthology, but at least it made it to the short-list.
I also have a piece of flash fiction that made it past the slush stage and am waiting to hear how it does from there.
Okay, back to writing now.
