One big hole

Last week I discovered a huge hole in the plot of my urban fantasy—no kidding, it was large enough to drive a Mack truck through it. Most people would say, “No big deal, it happens in almost every manuscript.” And they would be right. However, this particular hole annoyed me so much it kept me up at night, and not because it was a complicated one to fix either…no, because it was so obvious. I still don’t understand why I didn’t notice it before. In any case, I am happy to report that it has been rectified, and that I am now sleeping well again. Lord knows I need my beauty sleep. ;)

I'm so glad published authors do this too. Sometimes I wonder where I left my brain when I discover a plot hole.

Glad you could patch it up!

Thanks, Tia,

There are always a few small plot holes in my first drafts. But I usually have everything under control by the end of the second draft...well,obviously not this time.
