How do you guys prefer reading or writing description? Are you someone that lives for all the little details or are you someone who prefers just enough to get by? Me personally: I don't care for tons of description. Knowing the waiter's name or the brand of the sheets when it has no impact on anything irritates me to the point of wanting to throw the book across the room. But, then, I'm impatient. In my writing I tend to be fairly sparing in my descriptions until I want to either slow down or amp up a particular section, or I want to draw attention to something important for the reader.
