I was just staring at my page here, where I have a little bio and I thought: Mark Terry lives in Oxford, MI with his wife, two sons, a dog and a dozen or so neuroses. Then I wanted to rewrite it (of course). Mark Terry lives in Oxford, MI with his wife, two sons, dog and closet full of neuroses. Then I thought: Is "neurotic writer" an oxymoron? So... is it?

"Neurotic Writer" is NOT an oxymoron. When "neurotic" is used as a noun, the two words are synonyms for one another, so it would be accurate to describe their use as "redundant," and simply pick the one that sounds best in a given sentence.
