Don't Be Afraid Of Detail

I used to always think I was going into TOO MUCH detail when I would write. I would panic, erase everything, and return to my trusty elementary school simple sentences.
 It took me a while to realize that those details made the story worth ready. Where is the fun in a story in which you can't picture? The whole point of books or stories are to transport you to another world, and to help you find your escape from the rest of reality.
Don't be afraid of detail.
As the saying goes, "No emotion in the writer, no emotion in the reader."
Write what you want to. Don't worry about what other people may think about your work. As long as you are proud of your literary creation, you have nothing to fear.
