Novel: Caught up in the mundane

In Novel on August 4, 2013 at 3:58 am

Here is a link to the novel that I write one page at a time.

There’s so many mundane actions that I do every day that have a great deal of meaning. For instance, I usually check my purse for my car keys before I leave the house or any store. That’s an incredibly meaningful action. Without those keys, I can’t get in my car and run the countless errands that life involves. But, IT’S BORING.

How much of these actions do my characters need to be walked through? Is it imperative that I describe how Leslie picks up the garage opener before going for gas? Will my readers wonder how the heck she got back in her house? Or, am I trying to hard to make Leslie seem like an everyday woman.
