Every Labour Day weekend, there is a worldwide writing contest called the 3 Day Novel contest. It's been around for thirty years. The idea is you are required to write a novel in three days with the winner being published. I did it last year, writing a 92 page novella.

BookTV in Canada started a reality show last year where twelve people are filmed while living in a big cahin bookstore for the three day period.

I've been selected as a semi-finalist, so I have an on-camera interview tomorrow to see if I get picked to be on.

The thing I need help with is they want me to bring a "personality revealing prop" to pose with. I'm having such a hard time trying to figure out what to bring. I'm looking for any suggestions as to what I should bring. (Of course it should reflect my personality, which doesn't come across here [I think], but what sort of things do you think they're looking for?)

That's a rather vague request.

No kidding. The best I can come up with to pose with is my DS, which doesn't seem like a good choice.

I wish I had a unicycle.

Giant rubber dildo? Dead grandmother? Ooh, be edgy and show up with a heroin kit!

I get BookTV so you'll have to keep us informed on what happens.
