Having said this, we know that any given set of events will have more action and scene than can be told, or written. Describing every insignificant facet will result in a meandering, unwieldy and boring story, regardless of genre.
Yes, a glimpse into the scene is important, but avoid cluttering your reader's view with overstuffed furniture, voluminous velvet drapes, and alley filled with discarded empty beer cans, cigarette butts, an abandoned Jeep, a gang of stalking feral cats and a Coors delivery truck. (Keep 1 -3 of these. The rule of thumb is no more than 3)
Your audience must rely on your perspective and balance. Choose which aspects of your story add to the richness and texture, and which ones are mere diversions. Ask yourself, "Is this detail important to the story?" What you include will send a message to your reader that it is a crucial piece of information. (Like if you describe windows hidden by voluminous drapes, you better set those drapes on fire later).
To quote Dr. Thomas M. Grundner, author, and founder of Fireship Press; "In other words, don't let your words get in the way of the story."
