Recently, I gave some of my writing (a scene) to a few friends to share their thoughts on. One gave me the "that's interesting, it's pretty good" response. Another gave me general feedback unrelated to what I had given him, with the exception of telling me I should add a widely used cliche. The third (the one that reads least) gave me some actual feedback. He had told me that he felt either the description of the room should either be all at the beginning in one whole section or spread out fairly sparingly throughout. Personally, I had felt that it had decent pacing, but am at a loss how to edit. I'd like to give a clear view of the room (through the protagonist's eyes) without describing every nook and cranny or having a reader lose interest. The room in question is a drab hospital room. It holds some significance because how my protagonist sees it reflects on her personality. But it could be any character or any place. Does anyone have advice on knowing when your descriptions are not enough or too much?
