Ok, my earlier post stunk. It bored me to tears... Let's have a little more end-of-the-week fun.
Here's the scenario:
You've been shipped out to an exotic island, one where you'll have access to everything you need to write a novel. You have a deadline of 2 calendar years to complete it. Beyond the bare essentials, you are allowed to bring one person and one object. Here's the catch though, you and your mystery guest can talk ONLY about your novel. Nothing else! They are to be your idea sparker, your muse, your... you get the idea. As for the object, it can be anything, so long as it will help you write your novel successfully.
Who is the 1 person you bring?
What is the 1 object you bring and the reason it will help?
