This is what I have so far in my Santarnica story: Spoiler “HMS Santarnica to Board Control, requesting clearance to land.” The sleek, metallic-grey vessel cut effortlessly through the clouds. Through the bridge window, Captain Helen Chert saw the familiar white coastline of her homeland. Her heart swelled when she saw the vast, endless field of green. She was home. “Clearance granted.” The static voice on the intercom replied. “Report to Station 44C.” “Rodger, Board Control. Enroute.” <Insert really big gap> The fields soon gave way to a city. Helen saw the familiar skyscrapers that towered by possibly hundreds of stories. Weaving in and out of the buildings were many ships <Insert yet another really big gap> “Well done, lads.” She smiled at the two young pilots. “Well done.” It has two huge gaps, I know. That's because I'm not exactly sure how to describe things such as the bridge, etc. My issue with this sort of thing is...how do I easily describe what's happening without going for pages upon pages about how the bridge is a half-circle shape thing, etc. I want to be able to find a balance where it's enough for the readers to see what it looks like, yet not be so lost in it that they forget what's happening or say something like, "They're going to land eventually, right? When are you going to stop waxing descriptions?" Like with the city. I want to describe a futuristic version of Inverness, Scotland (now called High Inverness, capital of the Scottish Empire) without going too overboard with it. Plus, when I start thinking about the clothing they'd wear, the food they're eating...it just gets overwhelming. Thoughts?
