Significant Objects is this really cool project that assigns random flea-market purchases to writers. The writer crafts a short story inspired by the object, the object gets auctioned off on eBay, and the proceeds go to worthy charities that support literacy and writing.

This round of Object auctions supports Girls Write Now -- and you can see, read about, and bid on, my significant object right here.

In other news, FLY AWAY HOME, my latest novel, is in the hot hands of my editor, and while I'm waiting for her notes, I will be amusing myself on Twitter, live-Tweeting "The Bachelor" tonight at 8. Come follow along! There will be drinking games relating to Tenley's marriage and Vienna's weave! I'm @jenniferweiner. See you there!
