It’s so cute isn’t it? All long ears and soft, soft fur. You just wanna pick it up and love it and hug it and make it your own, right?
DON’T TOUCH IT!
That’s its lure! They’re evil, EVIL I tell you!
Beware. These deceptively adorable creatures can mean death and disease for your current WIP (or at the very least a long stay in convalescence). They stare at you with their little eyes, and twitch their cute little noses, begging you to touch them, to pet them.
Then they sink their claws in. That’s right. These bunnies have claws, and they will infect you with Sexy Next Book Syndrome. Oh, you know the signs. The fever. The waking up in the middle of the night with characters and places and scenes from Sexy Next Book taking over your brain!
Meanwhile, your current WIP is going “But…but…”
And you can’t even HEAR IT.
The truly skilled are capable of handling the plot bunnies. Of giving them just the minimum amount of attention so that the idea is not lost and their current WIP is not derailed.
I’m currently being stalked, y’all. I had to send out this PSA and SOS because I made the mistake of believing I was one of the skilled, one of those who could wrangle. I touched the plot bunny and it’s set up shop.
I’m trying to get free, plotting my escape…had to send out this message while it’s looking the other way.
Crap. Crap! It’s LOOKING AT ME. I have to go!
