Are You a Multitasking Writer?

This past weekend I experienced something that could be considered the ultimate in multitasking: cooking while writing. 🙂

Believe me, I knew this could’ve ended in one or two ways. Either everything was end up “sorta” okay, or the food was gonna be burnt, burnt, burnt.

Bad news is the hubby caught me in the act.

Good news is the food turned out GREAT.

The even better news is that I managed to get at least 700 fresh words written during this multitasking adventure. 🙂

This brought the following question to mind:

What other types of multitasking do we as writers undertake?

I don’t have kids–yet–so my multitasking skills only go as far as cooking, cleaning, watching the hubs play video games, and things along those lines. <– This is at home though. The dayjob is another thing entirely. *smiles*

So I’d like to open the floor for anyone and everyone to share what other kinds of crazy multitasking us writers can do. What about you? Do you have a multitasking story to share?
