Agent Courtney's Prompt #6

Courtney has a prompt challenge on her blog, where the winner get their query letter critiqued. I don't exactly have a a query letter to be critiqued, but it's hard to say no to prompts when they're staring you in the face.  I've been kinda lax on the site and Blogger in general for awhile, and so the 6th prompt is the first I've stumbled upon, but I don't think that matters too much.

Three things you'd bring with you to a deserted island. Assume food and water are not an issue, and that you will be stuck on the island, Gilligan-style, for an unknown period of time. Defend your choices.
1) Well, I was gonna say my laptop for the Internet, and then I figured wi-fi didn't exist, so now I'll say a laptop that I've previously downloaded lots of movies and e-books onto so I can watch/read to my hearts content and have access to Word to type.  Actually, scratch that as I'm assuming that I'm also no where near a plug.  So, number one is old school writing supplies: lots of pens and lined notebooks.

2) Drawing things.  It's a skill I've always wanted to improve (okay, learn) and being on an island gives me plenty of time. So, plan paper and pencils and pens (different from the writing one).  And when I run out, I'll just learn to make my own ink or draw in the sand.  (This is an island with a beach, right?)

3) I'd normally say books, but I don't think I can bring a bunch and I can't just pick one because even if it was my absolute favorite I'd eventually get sick of it.  But still needing a distraction I think I'll bring a kitten.  Something for companionship that's also warm and fuzzy and not boring because kitten/cats are so dang adorable and if I had a camera I could totally make youtube videos and become a star. I mean, that cat would, I'd just be the money making agent.  It just better not destroy my sand drawings.


  1. A difficult question to answer.I like the idea of taking a companion. I'd probably take my dog though :)

  2. Just to let you know Jenny, I have an award on my blog for you x

  3. Rebecca - Dogs certainly are more active, but when wet they smell awful and I don't know if I'd want to be around it all the time. Also, again, THANK YOU!
