Ostentatious – definition: actions, manners, qualities intended to attract attention : showy
I found the most ostentatious author possession for today’s post. Ian Fleming’s gold typewriter. Yes it’s true – take a look at http://oztypewriter.blogspot.ca/2012/02/500th-post-golden-typewriter.html
Now that’s reveling in your author acclaim. What would a modern equivalent be – a gold laptop?

This is my favorite – Frida Kahlo’s diary – beautiful. I do possess a few notebooks and journals but hate to ‘spoil’ them by writing in them – stupid I know but they are so beautiful, it seems a shame to ‘deface’ them.
What is your most prized possession? My personal letter from Stephen King is mine. It has pride of place on my writing inspiration wall.
