Every time I start a story, I create the scene in my mind. I'm pretty sure others would be able to write it in 2000 words. However, once I start writing, I detail every scene way too much and the end result is about 5000 words.
How to know which parts must be detailed and which can be left to the Reader's imagination?
In writing extensively, the horror, thrill, and suspense are lost and the story becomes boring. How to combat this and write evenly and hold the reader's concentration?
