Monday Bunday

The rabbits at Houseful of Rabbits seem to like to go boating so when we saw this little boat in the Highlands we immediately though of them.


And I'm delighted to announce that Humphrey of Cottontails Baby will be the featured rabbit in the short story that I'm writing. I've finished the first draft of the story and it's currently with Crafty Green Boyfriend who is wielding his editor's red pen over it then I'll polish it up and send it off to try to find a publisher. (Crafty Green Boyfriend is the best reader of my stories, he always makes the most constructive criticisms. I don't let him near my poetry though!)

So congratulations to Humphrey, who just fitted himself effortlessly into the story.

I would love to have included all the nominated rabbits! But, do not fear, I've yet to choose the rabbit(s) to feature in my novel. Largely because I'm not working on the novel at the moment and so am a bit hazy about who would fit best. So if you entered your bunny into the competition, there's still a chance that he/she/they may be chosen to star in the novel and if you've not yet entered there's still a chance for your rabbit to become the star! Find out more and enter here.

as ever, red text contains hyperlinks that take you to other webpages where you can find out more.

Oh mt goodness! Me and Humphrey are in a flurry of parcel packing at the moment so I will write more later - and share the news all over Cottontails of course. Very happy. Especially as H not been too well last couple of days, this is just the lift we need. More later... Thanks Juliet,
Charlotte and Humphrey

Congrats to Humphrey!

That little boat does look like a bun-worthy craft--I can imagine the intrepid Racer at the helm, sailing off for parts unknown. :)

That looks like a Borrower`s boat to me....

I hope your story writing goes well. Do let us know when Humphrey appears in print.

Congrats to Humphrey, this will be a children's story? I would like to hear more about. Maybe read it myself too.

Eileen, no this one isn't a children's story, it's speculative fiction set in a future independent 9and flooded) Scotland
