First story jitters!


I’ve just published my first 3 chapters (yay)! I’ve wanted to do it for ages. I’ve always said that it is more about the process than the reads and I enjoyed writing it and that’s enough…BUT I can’t seem to move forward not knowing if it is on the right path.

It only has 3 reads and there are 3 chapters, so does that mean no one is reading past the first chapter - is there a way to know?

Anywho, all feedback is very welcome!!


first chapter dont count as a read so, at least they read chapter 2

Hi! I published my very first story on May 3rd and was somewhat disappointed that it had…well to be honest…0 views even after like a week :sob:

I’m an avid Episode reader, but new writer/creator on here, so I’m not really sure how this works. :thinking: Like do you get a view per chapter or if they finish the entire story??

I joined IG and started writing on the forum today in many different threads, and my story views are now 24. I’ve been posting my story in different threads in hopes that someone may come across and be interested and read as I’ve been doing. I’ve found some pretty good reads!

Hey @StoriesbyFlo just finished reading your story. I’m hooked. Definitely looking forward to more episodes. You’ve outdone yourself on the writing and directing!

Wasn’t sure if you noticed but the hottie therapist was missing in a couple scenes…maybe due to an error in coding? Or maybe a glitch in the app. It was at his apt and at the coffee shop. Figured I’d mention just in case. :upside_down_face:

ooO Thank you for letting me know, how strange. I’ll get it fixed.

Just finished reading your chapter two. Great work coming up with such a unique story. I like that I can’t quite guess where it is going but want to know more! I didn’t see any choices so hope to see some in the next few chapters x

Thank you!! Lmk what you think of ep 4. I’m curious to know if you’re still with me as in the storyline is flowing.

In ep 5-8, that’s when I plan to have things really pick up. I’ve been working on learning how to do simple/complex choices, so there will definitely be choices moving forward. And those choices may have (grave) consequences.

Do you have instagram? I definitely recommend getting one to promote your story.
