My advice would be writing something you personally would enjoy so you’ll still have motivation to write after you’ve published a few and have fun with it
Definitely do research and proofread your story also

My advice is story plan everything out and learn at least basic directing before starting an episode story. Even if you have an idea, you could get writer’s block if you don’t know all the elements of your story. As for directing, Joseph Evans, Mary D Sava, and Ashley Swann videos are a great way to improve on coding.

dont rush to publish, a lot of people rush out a story full of mistakes.

get rewiew of the story before you publish

read your story on your phone before you publish. because sometimes layers are different, and what is on your phone is what the reader will see,

on the portal it cant remeber what is happening in other episodes, so if you change clothes in episode 1, it wont know that in episode two, same if use if elif, where it depends on choice, it dont know what goes on in other episodes on the writhing portal

but do on the phone so you have to test it there, it will remember every choice on your phone and can see what is happening in other chapters.

Hey so I recommend planning out your story first (what I do is plan out characters and their development, then plan out important events, then plan out actual chapters with bullet points of what should occur)
This allows you to focus on things that are important to the story and prevents writers block later on down the road. Additionally, since it’s just bullet points you can come up with the dialogue that flows nicely as you go along.
Hope this helps!
