The Writing Studio
Not only a new place to hang out with my website and blog, but also a new name. A story in a minute to tell you how I came up with that name.
I’m sure you’re wondering why the move. There are numerous answers to that question. I’ll be posting in coming days my reasons for considering the change.
Some months ago my husband, Bob, began designing a structure which started out as an extension on the end of our back porch. The extension would be in the form of a tower reaching up toward our Douglas fir trees. Like all designs, and yes blog posts, it went through several iterations. We jokingly talked about who space it was going to be and for what purpose.
Time for a Change
Having spent several months working from my recliner in our family room and still struggling with the comfort level of my office chair, I decided a change of scenery would be in order.
I was further tempted by the fact that Bob’s design had turned into a writing space for me opposite our bedroom in the back yard. Here are a couple of examples of his handy workmanship on a difficult design. I still wonder what he was thinking when he drew this up as a hexagonal structure.
Several names were tossed around for this space–riter’s retreet (Bob), writing house (holdover from the days I spent in the Willamette Writers house), and then somehow we settled on The Writing Studio. Hence, the name for my site going forward.
I want this to be my home as well as yours. A place where we can come together, share a cup of coffee or tea, and talk writing, words, books, or needy places in our souls.
Hoping you’ll visit often.
