Partially due to the setting of my story taking place approximately 45 years in the future and partially due to the fact that I mentally construct almost everything I'm putting down on (digital) paper: I'm finding that I spend a large amount of time detailing aspects of the world that don't necessarily need to be known. My rational is: to create a world that is as believable as possible and to fully impression upon the reader the type of world it is, I need to take my time and flesh it out in detail. A quick example would be how I've spent about 200 words describing the construction (shape & materials) and functionality of a few cop cars. I'm not wasting time explaining things the reader would probably already know like the fact that there are 4 tires. But I do spend time describing the differences; things that the reader would not know of or expect. And this doesn't end with the cop cars, I've done this the buildings, streets, the general landscape, the tiltrotors, gadgets and more. I'm also basing almost everything I write off of real world examples or possible future examples to make the overall piece feel more grounded. I guess my concern and question is: do you enjoy this sort of exposition (granted it doesn't ramble on and on about the same thing)? Does it allow you to absorb yourself further into the world and as a result - appreciate the story and characters more? Or does it annoy/bore you, making you wish the writing would just get back to what really matters?
