Hey, I’m a writer and I know how bloody hard it is to introduce scenery in a story. It’s brutal. You try to be subtle and there are times when we writers have all the subtlety of a roaring chainsaw.
So, I’ll forgive the fact the heroine in EVERY SINGLE BOOK of the five-book series walks into a room, DEAD STOPS, and describes the setting.
What I won’t forgive is the author going on about the “woven tapestry rugs” and “velvet curtains” for THREE FREAKIN’ PAGES.
God save me.
No one needs 750 words of room description.
