Where Did the Plot Go?

I’ve been reading a long running series (in an attempt to stimulate my own creativity), and at some point this week I had to stop and face the fact that THE SERIES HAD NO FLUID PLOT. There were story arcs of course, and there was a plot-ish feel to the first two-thirds of it, but now…what happened? There are huge plot gaps, serious dismissals of previous pieces of information, and no general coherence to the beginning of the story! I feel as though every classic plot writing mistake has occurred within these pages!

And this got published. Not only published, but incredibly popular.

There is hope for me.
