I have a question or comment on writing styles. It sort of fits into one of the earlier posts I just commented on about classic writing. To set it up... As I read through the reviews I've done, looking again for revisions... I also read through the other reviews to see what everyone else had said. I was really surprised by some of them. The stories I enjoyed the most were reviewed as "too descriptive, I couldn't get past the first part!" I thought they were wonderful! I liked the tone... the images they put forth... but a lot of the reviewers on here totally disagreed! My own work has been called the same... So at what point does "too much description" become a personal preference? How can you tell if some of your sentences really are too convoluted or it was a matter of reading taste? Should you edit your work to a simpler form because your tone is too thick? All I can think of is Anne Rice vs Stephanie Meyer. I'll take Anne Rice any day! Anyone have any thoughts on how to gauge this?
