If it doesn't move the story along or holds details for later it's in my opinnion to much filler is a bad thing. It bores people it like reading about a fight and suddenly you writing about every detail about a cloud that isn't a medaphor <- (I know spelt it wrong.) for what is going on of relevant to the book.

DON'T try too hard. The writing will just come to you. You'll end up giving yourself a head ache.
I would just skip over the filler part I needed or write what ever came to mind. When I wrote a lot, I would reread my entire work and add random bits needed. Maybe you should try that.
Hope I helped.

Yeah, it was fine.
Its just that sometimes I feel that I'm trying too hard to obtain the filler needed and that it's actually ruining the story. Have you ever felt that way?

The rest of your chapter, my even into another chapter depending on how important the description is. You can add lots of little bits in places or a whole scene setter. Hope this was usefull, if not, sorry :) x From Jess x

Okay, this was originally a thread for a project of mine but changed just as I wrote the title.
So now, I pose the question to the webook community:
Where do you draw the line for filler? (the descriptive writing that doesn't move the story forward at all)
