Nearly a year ago, on my old blog, I made a valiant attempt to start a regular feature. I planned, I pinned, and I posted. Three times. Three posts do not make much of a regular feature. Today, however, I am bringing it back, for you, as a one-time-and-maybe-more feature. I call it writerly travels: virtual visits to the homes and studios of authors I’ve read and loved.
A dear friend of mine is currently in England, traipsing to all sorts of literary sites, and I am thoroughly envious. She’s seen some of Wordsworth’s papers, Chaucer and Shakespeare texts, and Jane Austen’s writing desk. Perhaps I should be a little more astounded by Middle English volumes, given their age, but Jane Austen’s writing desk has me ready to catch the first flight to London. Can you believe she composed such great novels at a desk so small?
Which writerly locales would you like to see? Please share, and I’ll try to turn it into a feature!
Until next Thursday,
Katie (unwritten, untitled)
