One of the jobs of writing is to transport your reader to another place or time with words, feelings and impressions. You have to see or feel it yourself first if you are to have any impact. What you write and describe needs to be believable or interesting. Paint a picture so vivid and strong you wet their appetitie and make it impossible to stop reading. Reach out and transport your reader.

Adjectives! I love them don't you? Do you want to reach out and touch your reader and draw them in? Then do it and put in details. Describe the scene, the character and his or her mood. Look around you and observe. Make it rich so your reader will want more. So important as I've been told with my own work. I always refer back to my journalism lessons. The four W's and H - What, when, where, why and how? If you're stuck try these. Let me know how you do. Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend and may creativity abound!
