I'm having a recurring problem with my projects in which I tend to be a fine craftsman. I want to describe things down to the finest detail and construct things to my exact vision. I'm wondering if this is due to my chronic tendency to be a perfectionist or that I don't think very highly of my readers. In High school many of my peers weren't able to grasp even the simplest of similes, scenarios, references, metaphors, etc. so I had to dumb it down or go into excessive detail so they wouldn't get lost. Fast forward to now about 5 years outta HS and I still think maybe my readers are dense. It's not on purpose I promise, but I come from a background where I was hailed as incredibly smart (which is odd because I'm slightly above average, just creative) but people have caught up finally at least to my base mind. How do I stop though? While I'm writing I literally have the thought "I really wanna hammer this point home" about 70% of the time. I'm still struggling to understand the whole concept of less is more in writing.
