Curation Corner: Can/should writers multitask? A verdict.

I couldn’t help myself. This image just spoke to the ‘task-switcher’ in me.

First off, my posting this is the epitome of multitasking, as I was in the middle of a search for online images for another project. I guess that makes me as qualified as anybody to post this. (Further proof of my qualifications: Dating back a couple of weeks, I have three separate posts in draft mode.)

Sadie Chelsea of thehonestwriter.org breaks down the issue for us here.

One thought: Sadie’s post claims “Multitasking can even impair cognitive ability…” For me, that’s assuming I have any left.

Another thought: There are some mindless tasks that can be accomplished while, say, exerbiking or with the TV on. Granted, it may well erode that cognitive ability discussed above.

A third thought: I’ve run out of cognitive ability for the moment. Time to click ‘publish’.
