Plot Bunny or Dust Bunny?

Good morning! I’ve been filled with lots of plot bunnies over the years, but there have been many dust bunnies too. What’s the difference you might ask? Well, let me enlighten you.

PLOT BUNNY…

A plot bunny is a story idea. And like bunnies, it multiplies rapidly if not handled. They can appear at any moment and will haunt you until they get their way. Now, not all plot bunnies are good. Some of them can be quite worrisome and filled with holes. And nobody wants a bunny with holes… These are dust bunnies!

DUST BUNNY…

Now, a dust bunny is something everyone has under their bed. You know the ones that even after you vacuum, sweep, and mop, they are still there just floating around and annoying you. Well, in writing, these are the plot bunnies that go sour. You know the ones, they are the ones that don’t pan out. A dust bunny has no hope of ever panning out. They are full of holes, like I mentioned in the above paragraph. So, with some planning and plotting, you can avoid falling into a dust bunny well.

As always, good writing and May God Be With You…
