how important is setting? how do you guys handle it?
i find my short stories often have a pretty clear setting in my mind, but I go sparse on descriptive detail in my writing, it's not only that I find writing location descriptions as tough and a little awkward, but I often feel like it may be extraneous.
the other problem I have is writing a story in some vague imaginary new york, but I have trouble describing it because I've never really been to new york. I give some barebones literary description of the big mean city, but I feel I probably don't communicate it much.
