I have a very annoying tendency of taking a description of something-which can often only need about one or two sentences at most-and going into very long, detailed descriptions which needlessly prolong my stories. I think it has two main causes-The first being that I want my "audience" (which is really just me) to picture what I'm picturing, something I know you really shouldn't do because I've always been under the impression that the best stories let the audience picture it how they want. Now these stories aren't intended to be shared, but I still like to write like a good writer should. The second cause is I have trouble describing things easily, so I seemingly HAVE to do this, otherwise I leave nothing but a blank page for the audience to work with. To provide an example, here's an excerpt from an old story of mine: "A long tail, made of intestines. The chest ripped open, with two claws made of the ribcage sticking out. The lower jaw had two massive fangs." This isn't as long as I normally go into, but it still feels unreasonably wrong, or that there's a better way to describe it. Any tips?
