How do I decide which description ideas to use?

Great question! Unfortunately, there is no easy answer other than to trust your gut. Think about your character, your scene, and the goals you have for what you're describing. Then read through the list and see what pops out at you. Remember that you want to do more with less, choosing details that also show emotion, characterize. or reinforce a theme or central idea. Once you find a detail that feels right, tweak it by writing it in a fresh way that fits your story.
