Meet an Author Monday

I don't know about you, but distraction seems to be a huge part of my writing process.  Like, if I find myself struggling for too long over a certain description or dialog, I find it's good for me to get up and walk away---the solution invariably pops into my head when it's most inconvenient to jump back to the computer---or I go cyber surfing to do something fairly mindless to recharge.  I read somewhere that J.K. Rowling regularly plays Tetris while writing, so I figure it can't be all that bad of a habit.  My latest distraction was creating a You Tube playlist of 80s MTV videos.  You'll get to see the fruits of my "labor" in my next blogpost (or right now at the new "80s MTV" tab).  But I'm wondering, what are the little things you like to do to recharge those writing batteries?
