A lot of times my writing feels slightly flat. It falls short of being able to paint an accurate picture that makes sense and says what I want the scene to say. It's usually the minute details of a particular aspect, not so much mood or atmosphere. I can manage that just fine (I think, although that, along with other aspects, tends to run the risk of suffering when I start to think about the fact that I feel I lack pretty densely in the details). Should I get some friend(s) to critique me or give me ideas on how to make a scene come alive just a little more? Or even to tell me when a scene really can't be drawn out or exploited much more before it becomes trite, lifeless exposition, or worse, purple prose? Or should I just let it go and try to find that within myself? Maybe I just need a dictionary on hand at all hours of every single day ever in my writing endeavors.
