If description is done poorly = do not use it.

I am an atmospheric, poetic writer. Lack of description would be the death of my writing. My poems would rot away in tiny little coffins. My prose, hung out to dry, flat sheets in the sun. My characters couldn’t live without it. My novel would be a few thousand words shorter. And my writing life would be boredom magnified. Couldn't do it.

But if you are going to do it poorly…please, just, don’t.

Some writers are descriptive writers and others are not. Do what you do WELL.
