Plot Bunnies Suck

plot bunnies

Another night of rough sleep.

Rough as in I roughly got…none.

I would just begin to drift when a character I am writing pokes me in the brain and says, “Hey…hey…what if…” I would wake enough to imagine the scene and decide it was cool and drift yet again.

Enter sub-character number three. He wants to be a main character, so I get poked in the brain, again. “Hey…pssst…I know you are trying to sleep, but I was thinking I could…blah, blah, blah…and become a spin-off character…blah blah blah.” Nope. Not a strong enough character to pull that off, but it kept me awake for 45 mins thinking it through. Thanks, dick.

This has been three nights in a row and when I fall out of bed in the morning I CAN’T REMEMBER ANY OF THE PLOT LINES! This, among many other reasons, is why plot bunnies suck. You get a glimpse of the fuzzy little creature, you might even get to pet it, but then it is gone in a flash. Leaving you to stare at its ass as it disappears forever.

The little suckers love to compete with the lovely sheep I have been watching jump fences so I can fall asleep. They bounce their happy little asses up and down making me lose count and drawing my focus away from the fact that I haven’t gotten more than 4 hours of sleep, in a row, for THREE DAYS!

Maybe I need to remind the little bastards that I like rabbit…stew.

Now, what was I gonna write about again? Crap.

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
