I don't quite agree with this form of writing, I always felt it
to be too out of its way in its descriptions; I actually find myself
more immersed in stories in which contain a more "static" form of descriptions and tend to find myself cringing at these apparent "try hard" descriptions.
I'll end up thinking "noodles bags of bleach? wtf? You could have just said billy felt weak and nauseated." I'd
say it has its place in poetry however.

Don't fall into the intellectual trap, either.
Writing is as much about instinct and wisdom
as it is about knowledge/educa tion. If you let your head get in the
way of your heart, you'll never write a moving work of fiction.
