Advice for Increasing Episode Length

As I’ve begun to really write on Episode I’ve noticed that my episodes often are very short in length. They usually end up only being around 500 lines and I know that the recommended length is around 1000 lines. What are some things I could do to increase the length of my episodes?


Well the obvious answer is to simply write more story, add more scenes ect, but also line length doesn’t really matter, if you use a bunch of transitions, overlays and other things like that, your code line count is going to add up a lot faster, but as long as you are happy with it it doesn’t matter that much. But if you still want to make it longer then you can add more choices, explain more about the characters etc.


That makes sense, thank you.
