I'd comment on the blog/don't blog kerfuffle, but I'm too busy
I am finding that while I used to be able to write, check LJ, hang out in a chatroom, and keep abreast of my email and a message board or two, these days writing takes up enough of my concentration that I have to close down email and so on to manage it at all.
My writer's group chatroom still seems to be okay, though--but that's usually full of people writing.
I'm getting more focused and worse at multitasking. Perhaps a function of writing harder things. Perhaps merely a function of my aging brain.
