Fictional Bunny Update

Yesterday, I invited you to nominate your bunnies to star in the novel and short story I'm writing. It might be useful to outline the stories the bunnies will feature in!

The novel features a young woman who, with her family and community, is a climate change refugee moving into an island community in an independent (and flooded) Scotland. The story follows the fortunes of the two communities as they try to find ways to live and work together. Rabbits are given as gifts to the new arrivals.

The short story started off as a sub plot of the novel. It focuses on a woman from the Scottish island featured in the novel as she studies at the International University in Lanark, the new capital of an independent (and flooded!) Scotland. She adopts a rabbit from one of her colleagues.

I'm expecting to finish the short story in a week or so and then will re-edit it so that the bunny character reflects the appropriate winning bunny.

I'm expecting the novel to take a lot longer, but will keep you up to date with progress!

Note that in both novel and short story, some rabbits are eaten as food, but the winning bunnies will be well cared for pets!

You can nominate your bunny here.

Congratulations on your story writing and I'm 'all ears' to read more. Loved the responses to your previous post. I recently came across this amazing artist via the web and thought you may enjoy looking at her animal photos ~
