I try to answer a very basic question for myself: Whom am I writing the story for? For myself? If the answer is Yes, there’s no issue at all.
But, if my answer is gonna be, ‘for the readers’, then I find myself becoming instantly responsible for my readers.
I remind myself that I should say my story in a way that makes sense to them in all respects. If I do stay true to that sense of responsibility, I find that readers are quick to acknowledge it.
