Little details, like the design of the saddle used on a horse, might have little to no relevance to a story plot, but believe it or not, it’s those little details that can make or break a story for a reader. Take that saddle for example. If you are writing a story that takes place in medieval times, you don’t want to be talking about the horn on a saddle because the saddles that your characters are using likely didn’t have one. It may be only a passing sentence in the whole manuscript, but it can be enough to keep your readers happy.
