The Evil Plot Bunnies of Doom Are Out to Get Me!
|I'm not sure where this term plot bunnies came from, but the authors of Torquere Press use it, so I've adopted it. From what I understand, it's all those wild half-formed story ideas that run around in your head, multiplying.|
Right now, kung-fu grip plot bunny has me in his evil clutches. It's not going to be easy to shake this one.
It's not that I don't want to have these incredible rushes of creativity. I swear they're like mainlining adrenaline, only more addictive. But... after I finished my first draft of Personal Demons, I set it aside so that I could think about all those details that make a rewrite worth the effort. I'm working on a short story right now and won't return to Personal Demons until I finish it, but then I have to get serious and start working on my rewrite and I don't need the distraction of a vision of a cute, slim, punk, conman jumping on his bed while skull fucking a teddy bear. Really, I don't need that right now *beats back evil plot bunnies with a broom* no matter how deliciously tempting that scene is to write.
Maybe just a couple paragraphs. I can quit any time. Honest.
