comment I need a good title
Hi Sarah! Welcome to Writers.SE! We're a bit different from other forums you might know. We're a Q&A site, and what we do is answer questions which could be helpful to many authors. Suggesting titles or rephrasings is something that doesn't work well within our format, and we've declared it off-topic.

comment Signs of Bad Character Development
@TomAu : Definitely! Pretty much anything can be made plausible, with justification. What I meant here is when you the author feel the behavior sounds unlikely, or unconvincing, and the reason you're willing to let that slide is because "Real Person X really did that." If you were to leave it at that, without delving into the reason behind it (as you say), then that'd be poor character development.

I've edited to make this less of a hypothetical "what-if" and more on-topic. reader, I hope I'm in line with your intention for the question :) If you're new to Stack Exchange and how our site works, I invite you to take our site tour and get a feel for how things work here!

What purpose do you need the estimate for? (If you get it wrong, is that in any way a problem?)

comment Why do writers sometimes use so much description?
Because: (A) That's how much description the author felt necessary, appropriate, and interesting for that particular bit; taste is subjective, so obviously Your Milage May Differ. And (B) The author has many different goals; enabling the user to use their imagination is one among many, and plenty of times it's not the most important one at a particular given moment.
