By that, I mean do you often take a break from the actual plot and have your characters do things they normally wouldn't do? Or couldn't do depending on the setting? Do you attempt to be as realistic as possible when you have fun, or do you just go all out crazy? With me, some of my favorites are when I had my Colonial detective randomly start singing Biz Markie songs into his cane as if it were a microphone. Yes, my Colonial detective. Singing songs made by a guy who wouldn't exist for centuries. I liked it so much I considered putting him in the 20th century just so it would make sense. xD If so, does this often help jog your creativity? Reveal a side of your characters you didn't think about before? What are some of your favorite 'off-plot' moments when you allowed your characters to go nuts for grins/experimentation? Share if you feel brave enough.
