comment Tips to identify “noise” or “clutter” in your story
I don't know... I can't remember where I saw it. I tried looking for it and couldn't find it. Give me time, I will find it eventually.

comment Tips to identify “noise” or “clutter” in your story
The single most useful piece of writing advice I've ever encountered came from the author Haruki Murakami, who said something to the effect of "Spend as much time as possible on the things the reader has never seen before, and minimize everything else."

Your first example verges on being a beautiful sentence. Keep going, Alex, you're getting better.

comment Could I reach the level of good writing style as non-native language speaker?
Yeah, I think Nabokov is an unfair example-- he was a linguistic genius almost without peer. And moreover, he grew up in a trilingual household, so I wouldn't say his situation was entirely analogous.

Sorry to break it to you, but Nabokov has been dead for 35 years. He's not writing in any language.
