Well, we're all a LITTLE crazy. And in my case, pretty nuts, but that's what makes the world fun, you know? But your craziness doesn't have anything to do with you trying to act the part of your character, no ;P
Hahaha, that sounds great xD I mean it, I actually do something similar, and if you've ever seen a voice actor studio while they're recording, all of them make gestures and expressions while they're speaking to better be able to get into character.
So yeah, I understand completely :3 It's not nuts, it's logical!
Aww, I'm glad to know you care about my opinion. -That- means a lot to me, in ways you don't even know. <3
I understand what you mean. When you can relate, it's easier to write for a character too. At least, in my opinion. I actually put myself in every character that I make. Don't tell anyone, because it might sound crazy. But I walkthrough scenes in my apartment when I'm writing my short stories. Like when a character is holding a gun at eye level, I hold up my arm to think about what they see and what they might be feeling. Stuff like that. Wow, that makes me sound nuts... uh... never mind...
