Thank you for your response.
I feel like you’ve gotten to the heart of the matter. As I said before, description is like any other tool of writing; it can be used as much or as little as needed in a given circumstance. How and when it’s used is going to vary from writer to writer, project to project, and even from moment to moment.
The only thing that matters is that you as the writer use whatever tools you like, in whatever way feels comfortable to you, to tell the best story you want to tell.
