Beware: the EVIL Plot Bunnies

I have serious plot bunnies in my head. I need to sort them all out before I start my NaNoWriMo ( National Novel Writing Month) planning this month. I have all kinds of bunnies – I have Psycho bunnies, romance bunnies, crazy bunnies, emo bunnies. murderous bunnies, good bunnies, bad bunnies – name it, i have it! And they are very EVIL. SRSLY.

Some of you maybe asking. WTF is a PLOT BUNNY? Are they cute? Are they the ones that hop around and eat carrots? Do they have a wriggly pink nose? Do they have bushy tails?

PLOT BUNNY (from URBAN DICTIONARY) – An idea for a story that gnaws at the brain until written.
Plot bunnies are nice when you need inspiration. But not when you need to sleep or work. ( Like Right now!) They nag you and nag you until you give in and sit up at 3 am on your computer typing or writing furiously until they make you stop or you just drop from exhaustion. Plot bunnies are demanding little critters that hop around your brain – making you do things. 🙂

They could make you cry, fall in love, go insane, make you murderous, make your characters go psycho – make you psycho. Theyre the little voices in your head that create characters. Theyre annoying muses that wants to play or be written.

You have no choice as a writer but to follow. You can’t hate them. You have to love them. No matter how demandingly annoying they are. You have no choice. I have tried many times to lock them up and/or send them via Fed-Ex to Antartica but to no avail. They escape from the box or come back with a fury — with more annoying plots that fill up your brain.

I have to tame them before NANOWRIMO comes. If anyone has any ideas how, let me know… 🙂 Id be grateful.
