This redesign/rebranding was definitely a labor of love, built with YOU, the aspiring writer in mind.
I’ve recently heard from writers who are wondering how vulnerable, raw, or even politically correct they should attempt to be in their writing. The overarching fear is that there’s a risk of backlash for potentially offending a reader. And I get it. In this day and age, it’s difficult to discern how differing views and thoughts will be received and how people will react.
I’ve been faced with this dilemma myself and I’m sure many of you have, too. So, at the risk of offending someone, I’m going to share my opinion.

You spend a lot of time thinking about your characters. But how well do you really know them? Do you know how they interpret their world or how they'd react in any given situation?
