Cause I have been noticing in my last post, my character, Gemma, had a bunch of character holes, the same situation occurs with her mom, Lea, and abusive step-dad, Chris. In my opinion, character holes lead to plot holes. How do I write a cohesive story? How do I make sure my stories don't sound all over the place? How do I make characters have a clear purpose in the story and aren't just there for added words? I want to write a good story but I don't think I can until my writing skills have developed, so I need your help guys. Please and thank you.
