What is the bunny apocalypse? It is a flash fiction collaboration penned by twenty writers and then published on the moderators blog concluding on, appropriately enough, Easter day.
What is flash fiction? I had no idea either. The always amazing Ksenia Anske put out a call on Twitter last week for writers interested in doing an Easter flash fiction called Bunny Apocalypse. Of course, having no idea what that was, armed only with the information above and the fact I had a 500 - 600 word limit, I jumped right in. I had this picture in my head of the Easter Bunny à la William Wallace in the movie Braveheart that just delighted me. I assumed each writer came up with an individual short piece. I hammered mine out real quick and zipped an email to Ksenia; I really wanted to make the cut (there was a black leather duster with a hole for the tail, plus purple war paint because Lenten vestments are purple). I was excited and symbolic.
I was also wrong; flash fiction is a round robin. Not helping? The first chapter sets up the initial premise. Each subsequent entry builds off the previous until there is one piece of collaborative fiction written [in this case] by twenty different authors.
My dorky enthusiasm got my entry voted as the lead. And now I get the unique pleasure of watching the story as it unfolds. I’ve already read the next several chapters ahead of the one I wrote. It gets dark, fast, and it is funny. This is going to be a bloody, bunny, good time.
The Bunny Apocalypse goes live today 9:30 pst/12:30 est. Easter will never be the same.
