Purple prose is generally a term to describe writing that's overly ornate or flowery that it break the flow of the story and draws attention from the main point.

Chloe Fray (bowtiesandtrenchcoats) | 46 comments Just try writing out the story first, then adding a little bit of detail here and there.

Chloe Fray (bowtiesandtrenchcoats) | 46 comments Just try not to overdo it. A little bit of description is okay.
