If we’re not connected on Instagram, you may not have met my little friends, yet. What author doesn’t have a Plot Bunny or three foraging in their brain, hopping across their keyboard, or dancing – the bunny hop, of course – across their desk? Plot bunnies in their heads, plot bunnies in their beds…
Of course, we also need wisdom: a wise old owl perched on one shoulder, reminding us with a gentle “Who?” that it is better to use active voice than passive, or that we might want to change the character names so as not to anger their real-life counterparts. A green dragon keeps an eye on us all, happy to light a fire under everyone, when needed – or to help toast marshmallow peeps during snack time.
Names? Oh, yes, they have names. Like most of my characters, they named themselves. Over a healthy breakfast, of course.
This was a far better breakfast than the first one I took PB to. Turns out, PB is a much cuter cousin of Monty Python’s vorpal rabbit. A bunny that’s decidedly not vegetarian.https://www.instagram.com/p/BGtyWKIIVxQ/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BGt0FzKoV0r/
They all like to read, of course. Here’s Owl – Herman – reading Go Set a Watchman:https://www.instagram.com/p/BGn4CaCoVwq/
And Plot Bunny, pondering his purpose in life.https://www.instagram.com/p/BGpxerAIV2q/
Plot Bunny came with me to get my eyes examined, and decided he’d like some specs.
Not that it’s going to do him much good.https://www.instagram.com/p/BHDQ2USAsbt/
I can’t cure what ails the world, but as their author, I can try to make their little corner of it happy, as they do mine.
