I'm writing a Third-Person POV Fantasy, and I want to publish online, but I can't give a cover or a summary, or anything else to help introduce the story...
Plus, my title that doesn't explain much, if anything... its something like "Water", or "Stream" or "Mirror"...
I want to start the story off like: "[Main Character] does [Stuff]..." or "[Main Character's Group] does [Stuff]...", but I'm having trouble creating descriptions that don't break the pace of the story.
How far into a story can I go until not physically describing main characters becomes really weird?
Some answers from the comments from the meta post:
I've written three novels without describing the physical characteristics of my characters, so the answer is as long as you want. – Kit Z. Fox
I think there was something about it, but it is a good Q. from what I read, do a little asap…just enough for us to get a general impression, that it is not just a disembodied body. Later more may be peppered in sparingly, but not necessarily... keeping things vague is good for the imagination. – Reed
