Writers Horoscope August 14: You overestimate your mental capabilities.
Enough with the multitasking already! It doesn’t even exist. And what you are doing (current terminology: context switching) is stealing brainpower.
Consider these drawbacks:
- You have a lower IQ. [This would explain your predilection for Dora the Explorer reruns to finishing that chapter from John Gardner’s The Art of Fiction.]
- You reduce your memory. [Uhhhh…you’re on this page because you clicked a web link to get here. ;->]
- You damage your brain. [Listen, your teens and 20’s are ruthless enough. No sense piling on.]
