No writer likes to leave loose ends, but when you're deep into writing, the tendency is you will leave some gaps and inconsistencies in your storyline. These lapses are called plot holes. As a writer, you may not notice it immediately since you know the story by heart. However, your readers can easily spot them and leave them confused. Plot holes can result from bad writing, bad editing, or that readers are very meticulous. And all writers face such a problem. This is perhaps the challenge of every fiction writer. Plot holes are seen as something that betrays your audience's trust and lowers your novel's quality.
