Do you like them/ think they are a necessity to keep reading?
Yes. I have no problem with it
i like them. they make me want to keep reading
I love them, but are they necessary? No. You don’t have to have a cliffhanger at the end of every episode to keep me intrigued. If I like the story I’ll keep reading :))
I think it depends what kind of story you are making and what kind of genre, for example if it were comedy (sitcom like) then I don’t its necessary to have a cliff hanger but if its a romance, action, adventure etc… I think it would be nice to have a cliff hanger.
I hope this helps💕
Cliff hangers always make me want more and to know more! Hope this helps
I think cliffhangers are what makes the stories interesting and get the reader excited for what happens next, but “false cliffhangers” as I call them, aren’t.
Examples of false cliffhangers:
Having no drama at all in the episode except a scare at the end where it zooms into a characters shocked face.
Those questions: “Will LI fall in love with MC?” “What happens next? Keep reading to find out!” “Uh oh, LI’s a bay boy! Will he change for you?”
False cliffhangers to a story are unnecessary and just there to create false drama, but an actual plot leading up to the cliffhanger is so much better and more interesting!
Cliff hangers always intrigue me to keep reading the story, but you don’t need them.
my story has some comedy but also has romance (its not the entire plot tho)
I prefer only having cliffhangers on important events where it actually has an impact and having a cliffhanger ending on every chapter gets annoying sometimes
especially since most of the time it’s a false cliffhangers like you think something bad happened to someone but it was just a misunderstanding that gets fixed in the first minute of the next episode or they purposely cut episodes short just so that they can have a pointless cliffhanger which won’t even matter next episode but it’s not a deal breaker for me, just kinda annoying if not done right
But what genre does your story go as a whole?
But I think that best way to see if your story could use a cliff hanger, is to plan it out and see if there is any episode/chapter that can benefit from making it dramatic because essentially that what cliff hanger is used for.
I hope this helps💕
No essential but It’s a perfect way to get ppl to pay for early access, I enjoy stories more w it + keeps me hooked! But one thing I would say, is pls don’t add false cliff hangers. Like, MC sees Li all beaten up n then u hear a shooting noise, the episode ends, u pay fo4 early access & it turns out to b a dream. When that happens, I literally die & usually stop reading bc of the frustration
yeah. especially if it’s an unexpected/ clever one!!
I love cliffhangers! But there are other ways to keep having reads.
please tell me these other ways, i want my readers to have a satisfying ending but also makes them invested in my story
you don’t always need cliffhangers, but it keeps me going to read more of the story. usually most stories that i read have some cliffhangers in the end of an episode and other ones are just normal ending episodes.
I love cliff hangers. And they can be pretty essential in keeping your reader hooked and anticipating for the next chapter. Especially since authors on Episode typically update biweekly or once a month. Readers can lose interest in that amount of time, so i think it’s important that the reader is left off with something to remember. And cliffhangers do best with that.
Cliffhangers aren’t essential for every chapter tho. I feel like that would be too excessive.
