I am in a weirdly good mood, so let’s do something happy and fun.
There’s been a lot of critique of various aspects of Episode lately - including from me - and while I do think it’s important to have an open discussion about negatives and to grow from critique, it’s also important to remember what we love about Episode.
So here’s what we do. When you feel super grateful for any one thing about Episode, come here and share it with everyone. It could be a favorite story, or a new friend you made on the forums, or something you learned using the app or on the forums. Just leave one positive thing. Think of something else? Come back and add it! When you get frustrated with something Episode-related, come back here and read and remind yourself of what you love.
I love how Episode is secretly teaching us all how to program/code. Like, I obviously already knew we were learning a coding language as we were directing stories, but I didn’t realize how universal the knowledge I’ve gained here would be until I was talking to my dad about his college programming class and he explained that they’re going over things we already know: if/then/else, for example. It’s pretty cool that not only are we all learning to write better stories together, we’re also learning a whole new (computer) language!
