Tentworking - the next big thing?

Elizabeth at the Charlottesville Words blog (a blog by, for, and about readers and writers in central Virginia) has a marvellous post about Tentworking. "Last Sunday I had a sudden inspiration to set up one of our tents in the backyard," she writes. "No special reason; it was a nice day and my son had a friend over and I thought someone might enjoy using it. Then I had another inspiration — I would use it. So now most afternoons I go out to the tent with my notes and steno pad and a pen and scribble for an hour or two. Sometimes I nap. Sometimes I sit and listen to the birds. It’s very refreshing. I look forward to my writing time every day now instead of dreading it...I think tents are the next wave of shedworking. Light, portable, affordable — Tentworking." Is tentworking the new shedworking?

    From the price factor alone the Zero Lubin's would use tent working however due to the serious wind gust's of our locale it's just not possible.

  2. Maybe if you used bigger pegs?

  3. I love a good shed especially in the morning - that is if the sun is shining. That wonderful smell of warm wood & preserver...certainly a hard one to beat.
