On Plot Holes

Plot holes are a constant threat in every manuscript.

When writing a serial, I have found that, at least for me, it’s easier to forget what’s been written before.

When I add a significant object or event, I try to work out a good place where it can be resolved before I forget it.

It’s like a loom, and a thread has been left out until the opportune moment to work it into the tapestry.

Last night I worked one of those pesky but important threads back into THE SEA ROSE and it feels great.

Firstly, I’m glad that I remembered it! Secondly it was a fantastic spot to have the characters bring it up again.

Has a plot hole ever sabotaged your writing on a large scale?
