Origin of Incidental

Early 17th century: originally from medieval Latin incidentalis, from Latin incident- ‘falling upon, happening to’

When something is incidental, it is never the main thing. It's okay to include incidental details as they can add depth to your storytelling, but they are never crucial to the story.  The music you hear between acts of a play is called incidental. It's not crucial to the action, but it makes the waiting easier. 

"I do some kind of work, whether writing or painting or recording, on a daily basis. And it's so essential that when I'm involved in the actual process, my so-called 'real life' becomes almost incidental, which becomes worrying."  ~ David Bowie ~
