    So do you mean not to share your own personal biases when developing themes and characters? I have never thought about it before, but I guess it can be a problem with your target audience, if for example you bring politics into it.

    But in some cases, is it ok to express a bias, provided it doesn't cause any harm to anyone?

    Well I try not to cause harm to anyone, but somebody is always going to get offended by something, no matter what you do. So don't do it intentionally and you should be fine.

    My biggest editorial challenge is applying the fixes I insist on others implementing, to my own work. It's been ... revelatory.

    And tightening up my character's through-line / motivation. I've had a rare thought about that this morning and it's looking like another rewrite. But this one I am excited about.

    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
