Here's my advice: * Write first, edit later. Accept that your first draft WILL blow, and don't let that slow you down. Just write, and worry about making it look good later. * If you don't want to describe every detail that's fine, but give your reader SOMETHING to work with. Sometimes, a character's age or living situation is enough. If we know she's female and in high school, we can probably form an image of our own of what she looks like. But if you're writing a sci-fi story with a generic hero, and won't tell us anything about his appearance, age, or clothes, you're telling the readers, "I don't care about my protagonist, I just snatched a name from the air so I could have someone to carry the story." * Only fill your story with things that are either important to the plot, or entertaining. If you want to waste five paragraphs on a pointless but fun action sequence, that's fine. But don't waste five paragraphs describing the character's every-day lives, just so you can make your story longer.
brainstorm, brainstorm, brainstorm Practice writing drafts to see how it sounds when you write it out.
What I like most, are characters that are believable in the way you can relate to them. I like stories that are exciting, that don't give away everything or reveal all the answers so I can still use my imagination.
I'd say more but I'm fucking tired right now. Best of luck to you.
