Always did like Daffy, but if I did that to my hilarious free-spirited characters, what happens to my story line??? I think I’ll just let them do their thing and if they run amuck on occasion, which one of mine did in this last book, so be it. LOL

Very fun Friday, as always. Thanks Steve!
Laughter and learning though Daffy Duck is a memorable teaching tool. Thank you for sharing this gift.
If memory serves, Bugs Bunny was the cartoonist. Very funny
Oh my, I enjoyed this so much. Thanks for posting it.
LOVE it!! My brother and I used to watch Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck every Saturday morning. 🙂

You gotta love Daffy Duck!
Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Just planning book cover, so relevant. I usually forward your fun Fridays.
Not just reign in our characters, but make sure there is a wee bit of set up scenery-wise ‘somewhere,’ where the character can interact with or muse over.
So… you’re saying we can delete our free-spirited characters? I think that would be fine if it doesn’t fit the plot, but sometimes the unexpected is always the best … unless, of course, the entire scene has to go, and then that’s never any fun—because I don’t get very much sleep. 😀
(Though so far, I’ve never had to “erase” a misbehaving character.)
