Hi, I’m having trouble judging whether or not my story follows the guidelines. The story is about people trying to steal a famous painting. I titled the painting Lisa Mona, which is an obvious reference to a real painting, the Mona Lisa. I changed the name a little, like how some authors put Epiflix instead of Netflix or Epigram instead of Instagram. But is that change enough?
And concerning the part where the guidelines say “real places cannot be a plot point or drive the story,” I’m worried, because the story ends up taking place in Paris, France, where the Louvre Museum is (because that’s where the real Lisa Mona painting is located). I only mentioned that the characters would be going to Paris, France to a museum, but I never specified the museum’s name. How much of the story will I have to change in order to make sure my story follows Episode’s guidelines?
