It’s important to give some consideration to the “big picture” in your manuscript. That’s why you need a developmental editor to check for larger issues.
However, developmental issues are difficult to see for yourself. Is the plot sound, do the character motivations feel real? In nonfiction, have you addressed everything you wanted, and laid it out clearly? You’re so deep into the story when you finish the draft that it’s often difficult to step back and look at it with fresh eyes.
