What turns you away from a story?
A big turn off for me in a story is when the grammar is dreadful, (grammar is important!)
Also When the plot is predictable and when the characters can’t stick up for themselves.
what are my pet peeves on a story?
When the writer/ story portrays a boring main character that absolutely has no personality at all. Or when the plot is very confusing…
Furthermore I just want to get this outta the way, when there’s Too much narration
Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind narration but when it get’s to the point where I have to skip it, it bores me so much. You need to show the story to the audience not telling it most of the time
what genre do you prefer?
I prefer the comedy genre because it’s funny and relatable and it isn’t filled with too much Romance
for someone who is just starting to write on episode, what advice would you give them?
Even thought they can be boring as hell, read the guidelines! it helps a lot I’ve learnt so much things off the episode guidelines or watch YouTube tutorials on how to start out a story perfectly.
what would you tell someone who is just starting to write a story NOT to do?
Well for starters don’t rush your story, because I’ve read many authors who rush their story and the story doesn’t come out as great because they want to get reads on their story straight away. Writing takes time , practice makes perfect, it will make a huge difference!
some of y’all are going to hate me for this but hear me out Secondly this is just my personal opinion but don’t write a story with a cliche/overused plot such as gangs or bad boys etc, if you REALLY want to write about that go ahead but all I’m saying is don’t write a cliche story with a predictable plot because what’s the point of reading a story if I can tell what’s going to happen?
what genre do you feel like it’s over used?
Romance, 99% of the episode stories on episode is romance hands down! Lmao.
what genre would you love to see more of?
I feel like the horror,and fantasy genre section is really underrated so I would love to see more of those.
How do you feel about the use of overlays and special effects?
I love the use of overlays and special effects I feel like it makes stories more professional, Overlays are a yes for me.
Does the cover of a story depend on whether you read it or not?
Honestly it doesn’t matter to me if the description of the story really gets me intrigued then I would read it.
Would you suggest promoting stories on social media? Why or why not??
I would suggest promoting stories on social media because there are a lot of unknown and underrated authors that need to get their stories out there, y’know?
