Ask Elnora--About Renovating????--Lenora Worth
Darlings, I'm in Florida at what will sometime next year become my "retirement" home. But I can't really retire. Writers don't retire--they reload--the printer, that is. Elnora has about ten or fifteen good years left. Of course, my brain comes and goes at random these days. But I still have lots of stories to tell.
Right now, I'm sitting in an empty room, working on an old computer desk my sweet Big Daddy loaded into the old Yukon for me. This room will one day be my new office and already I have grand ideas about making this rather tiny bedroom into a massive and comfortable creative space. We are sleeping on one of those airbed mattress thing tonight. We'll see how that goes. We brought a set of wicker I've had since the last century and that is our living room for now. We have a few clothes and some flipflops. Yes, I had to bring lots of shoes, of course. But only two purses for now.
We have water nearby to look at. I should be able to write here, don't you think?
But it's the renovations that will be the test. Which begs the question--if you could creat your perfect office and workspace, what would it be???? I'd love to hear your ideas!
