comment Signs of Bad Character Development
@TomAu : Definitely! Pretty much anything can be made plausible, with justification. What I meant here is when you the author feel the behavior sounds unlikely, or unconvincing, and the reason you're willing to let that slide is because "Real Person X really did that." If you were to leave it at that, without delving into the reason behind it (as you say), then that'd be poor character development.

I've edited to make this less of a hypothetical "what-if" and more on-topic. reader, I hope I'm in line with your intention for the question :) If you're new to Stack Exchange and how our site works, I invite you to take our site tour and get a feel for how things work here!

comment Why do writers sometimes use so much description?
Because: (A) That's how much description the author felt necessary, appropriate, and interesting for that particular bit; taste is subjective, so obviously Your Milage May Differ. And (B) The author has many different goals; enabling the user to use their imagination is one among many, and plenty of times it's not the most important one at a particular given moment.
