I belong to a writing website where you can earn points for critiquing others' work, then "spend" those points by posting your own work. This is a good system. My FWP problem is that I currently have 13 points, which is a bad number. I know this irrational and silly, but it irks me.

I've been commenting on other people's stuff, but the comments have to be approved by the writer who's receiving the critique before you can get your points. So I keep checking the site to see if my comments have been approved so I won't have 13 points anymore.

I know this sounds a little OCD-ish, but I don't quite meet the diagnostic criteria for that. I'm not having panic attacks or feeling serious dread about having 13 points. It's not interfering with my ability to function. It's just mildly bugging me.
