July dropped a whammy on me in a major way. Kids, work, home life, and this writing gig all converged into a shit storm of epic proportions. Silver lining to it all? Book 2 of the Dae Diaries, Air & Darkness, is that much closer to happening. I’ve been going back and forth with my publisher and need to rework some things, but it’s looking very promising.
It’s also very time consuming.
Which means *spoiler* in a stunning twist of fate, the universe made a liar out of me. My good intentions be damned—I mean, I even had a frickin’ check list and was all motivated—but everything is at a standstill whilst I’m trying to woo the publishing deities to accept my sacrifice.
So of course amidst all that bloodletting and gnashing of teeth, the aforementioned universe giggled once again and decided July would be an awesome time to screw with me. It totally threw a wrench in my plans, and not just any wrench, it had to go and provide the most ridiculous distraction possible…of the Monty Python variety.
Yeah. Talk about a whammy. As in refer to the Rabbit of Caerbannog. If you’re at a loss as to what I’m talking about, that’s an issue that needs to be addressed. Plunk your butt down in front of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, stat. Hmm? No time for shenanigans of a British bent? Then let’s chuck Bugs Bunny and Donnie Darko onto the table as exhibit B & C if you’re looking for more modern corroborating evidence while I lay my allegation out.
Rabbits are evil.
What? Oh, I know, they’re so cute an cuddly with their pokey widdle ears and fluffy widdle tails—
Stop. Do not be drawn in by their sorcery.
Though our modern sensibilities rail against the very idea, history doesn’t sugar coat it. In medieval times, rabbits were portrayed as super badass varmints. There’s a literal façade on Notre Dame (yeah, the big famous French church) that depicts a knight fleeing from a vengeful bunny. They also show up in tales as early as the 1170’s starring as furry little vigilantes.
