I’m a new writer and I have no clue what to do!

This story is about my mental health story. I tried I really did and I’m really sorry.

INT. CLASSROOM LA DESK - DAY

I have struggled with anxiety and depression all throughout middle school.

Can someone help me try to fix this?

I think you forgot to put the brackes on idle_sit_anklecrossed_sad_loop

Also, I don’t know if you spot directed the character in this scene and just put this?
But you have to spot direct the character in the scene first

That’s because you didn’t place the character on screen before the bubble.

I’m dumb, how do I do it?

You might want to take a look at some example scripts you can find in the portal, or look up video’s and guides.

(I’ll link some in a sec)

This is a good start: Episode Limelight Tutorial 1 - START HERE! - YouTube

If you don’t feel like watching video’s like I did, this might help: https://www.dara-amarie.com/guides Dara’s site helped me a lot.

Also, you’re not dumb, you just don’t know how to code yet:)

Thank you so much!!! :heart:
