Finished episode - tips


#1

How do you guys know if your episode is finished? I feel like I could add more to mine but I don’t know what to add. I want to make them better as well I just don’t know how.


#2

well i know when mine is done because i always leave it on a cliffhanger OR you just don’t know what to add/think it’s too long so you move on to the next episode


#3

If your episode is 900+ lines then you can just finish it there, but the best thing is to leave them on a cliffhanger


#4

i also think that you can only go onto the next episode if it’s at LEAST 400 lines


#5

But that’s quite short and the reader may feel as if they’ve wasted their pass. 900 lines is the least for me because it makes the episode at least 6-7 mins and hopefully around 10 mins for someone who is a slower reader


#6

That’s kind of what I’m worried about too. I don’t have many group scenes just two in my first episode. And in my last episode I don’t have that many scenes and it’s only about 450 lines but I wanted to leave it on a cliffhanger. Should I add more or just leave it as it is? I wouldn’t say all of my conversations are short but they are not that long.


#7

What is that chapter about? Usually I like to add a plot twist every episode so it spurs me on to write (because it’s fun to write dramatic scenes) so if you don’t already have a small plot twist to hook the reader, then maybe add one to prolong the episode?


#8

The thing is, for me, I don’t plan out my episodes, they’re always made up on the spot, so when I write a plot twist, it’s like a shock that it happens for me, too :joy:


#9

lol all of mine were written on the spot too :joy: Would you mind maybe proofreading my story?


#10

Sure, but I’ll have to do it on monday, I’m packing suitcases tonight, going to a wedding tomorrow and then flying to france on Monday :tired_face:

but I can read it in the airport? I know it’s not ideal to wait, but it’s all I can do seeing as i don’t have access to my phone right now (It won’t let me read episode on my iMac)


#11

That’s ok! I wish I could go to France. Maybe I’ll be able to add more too :joy:


#12
