Research Ecstasy!

"[Interviewer]: What was the most difficult part of researching it? Because it’s so incredibly thorough. I also thought maybe you could talk about the difficulty of writing it from any number of vantage points.

Jeff Chang: I never actually have any problem researching. I'm so...what do they call it? There's an actual name for this. It's research ecstasy. Like, I could stay in and research something all day and all night and for weeks and years and never actually write. You just get caught up in your own research ecstasy."

I am so tickled to have a phrase for this phenomenon now.
