    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.

    Man. My real problem is that I see far too much of the bigger picture. I'm not very good at either sub-plots, nor editing my grammar properly. I don't know why that is. My mind is only focused on the bigger picture. I look at it again and again, but by my 7th draft, I have to rely on Grammerly. I don't get it. It's like my mind passes by all the grammatical mistakes. It'll pass by misspellings, plural issues, rambling internal monologues and it all goes to crap. I feel ya.
