The Easter Bunny is making his first appearance at the Bay Park Mall in Green Bay. (Note the “he” and move on. Like a ‘she’ bunny couldn’t deliver candy.) If the Easter Bunny is working then why aren’t you? At least the guy in that bad furry costume is earning a few bucks while you stare out the window and think about whether a character should walk out of the room or sneeze.
Wait, isn’t that work?
If the character walks out the scene is over, and her relationship with a key employee is broken. If she sneezes it might indicate that she has caught the mysterious illness claiming members of her family. She might not be feeling well enough to deal with the employee relationship.
That is work. Your kind of work.
This decision is big progress in finishing the chapter and plugging a hole in the dramatic arc. On this sunny Saturday afternoon people are walking their dogs, filling their cars with gas, shopping for Easter candy. You could be out there having fun. Instead you’re sitting in a chair with fingers tapping at a laptop.
Correct that statement: “Instead, you’re sitting in a chair, working on your laptop.” You and the Bunny got something in common.
