Do you just leave it at ‘oops, plot hole’ (like some comedy authors) or do you try to find a way to excuse it?
I just came across a plot hole in my story last week. Basically, the five main characters are chosen to write for a storytelling app, but their boss gives them a goal: Their story has to have more reads than the stories of the writers that have already been working there for a long time. So then, these writers start introducing themselves and telling the new ladies how many reads they have, their position on the leaderboards, etc…
But then, I thought… if these are the only writers, it wouldn’t make much sense to be competing against each other.
So I had to change it so that the writers the new ladies met were the ‘top writers’ in order to avoid a plot hole.
