My mother is in her ninetieth year. She skips all the details wanting to get to the dialogue and the action. Perhaps she doesn't want to waste time or perhaps she is in fact, one of a majority?
So do writers need to do that extra research to try and add authenticity to their fiction or do they leave it all to their readers' imaginations?
On the other hand, there are also those who want more explicit details when it comes to the love scenes. How do we know if they are in the majority or not?
How detailed do you like it to get? Very real or fairytale?
