Plot Fails and Forgivable Sins

Write Pack Radio explores the traps and sins of story plots:

  • Do your characters suffer from a case of the plots and barf backstory all over each other?
  • Do your characters have an exposition couch?
  • Did the characters’ journey take a turn around a cul-de-sac?
  • Did they fall into a bamboo trap? 
  • Did your character walk through a giant plot hole?
  • Did your characters have a convenient misunderstanding?


What are your plot problems? Do famous books and authors suffer from this? What about television shows? What about movies? What about comic books? What about Anime?

Are the plot problems forgivable?  

This is one of Jennifer Stolzer’s favorite episodes. Why? Tune in…it will be obvious.
