I think everyone had this feeling at some point when they write any story and I just need some outside thinking or reassurance really. When I write what I can, I realize that at times it feels lacking in detail. Such as in I'm telling instead of showing. I also know you shouldn't compare yourself to another author but when I think of my favorite books I remember such vivid images and I can't help but wonder if my details are not enough. I know that for a majority of the visuals are the readers own imagination and too many details and too often can be quite tedious (I remember skipping entire pages because of that). I just want to find out if any of you have tricks or an idea on how to realize that you have enough details and imaging in your story. Because I know what the story and scenes look like but the reader doesn't and all they have is what I write. I am just afraid that my story will be a failure due to lack of imaging. Perhaps it's just me stressing or perhaps there isn't enough but I know that semicolons and details are my biggest weakness. Any ideas or tricks?
