I’ve read or heard somewhere that multitasking makes you stupid.

I tend to agree.

But sometimes, you’ve just gotta do it.

My mama calls regularly and asks what I’m doing.

So I tell her.

I’m cooking (in a crockpot), vacuuming(using a roomba), writing, and watching TV(I’ve written a lot with the TV on–1st rough drafts only). All at the same time.

As a writer, you’ve got to learn to multitask to get things accomplished, because writing a novel takes an extreme amount of time. If you don’t multitask, many things would go undone.

If you’re wondering what to give a writer for Christmas consider these items–a crockpot and a roomba vacuum. These things a writer couldn’t justify as writing expenses whereas books, computers pens, etc. can be written off.
