A hobby can provide alternate settings and a host of other characters with which your MC may interact. Hobbies range from the well-known (bird watching) to the slightly odd (extreme competitive ironing of clothes). An intriguing and little-known interest could also provide you with an entire subplot and/or act as an aid in bulking up your word count. Who knows - doing a little research on hobbies might provide you with an idea for your next novel!
