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?
