One of the things I struggle with when drafting a novel is plot. Or rather really big plot-holes that the Titanic could re-sink itself in. I have to remind myself that (for me anyway) character is more important. I love character driven novels and so it is very important for me to write a novel with characters who are real. The plot holes I know I can fill in later so long as I’ve got the main plot points down.
I wrote myself a little note to remind me of this…
Of course, a character who stuffs her bra, actually could be pretty cool to write! I was simply using this analogy to remind myself that I want real characters, not ones full of fluff and nothing substantial.
