I love this idea, and find it to be true in my own writing as well. I am working on a story right now but hugely struggling with one particular character. I know it's because I have little compassion for this type of person in real life and the same holds for this story. I love it when authors can make me see and understand the complexity in all of us, but here, my own judgmental attitude and lack of compassion is getting in the way. I'm hoping I can write my way out of it!
