First story tip?

i have been reading episode stories since 2016 and now i am making my own story.
but i think tips would be helpfull because i really want to want this story to work out, so any tip is helpfull.

little about the story:
the story is about Venere(the MC) that left italy because she wanted to proof her father that she as a woman can get to the top in this business so she left Italy en came to LA and wants to become the number 1 then she meets Marco(the LI) who is the leader of another gang ( the then number 1 gang) and they team up to take out Alessandro who is her half brother that she did not knew about until a few months.


Hey @Xepisode.s! I would recommend planning out at least the major events in your story and also write out outlines for your characters, so that each character’s personality is shown by their actions and words. Planning ahead can help keep the story on track and help you maintain a more regular updating schedule.

If you’re planning on having choices matter, which most readers probably prefer, note down the different paths that can be taken. (Using Google Slides can help, as you can link choosing a choice to another slide- to continue a certain path).

This is a cool website that can help organize your thoughts for your story:

I would recommend starting simple and then adding in advanced directing after getting more comfortable with your story and scriptwriting.

It helps to go through tutorials on YouTube and posts on the forum when figuring out how to code things, like moving overlays, choices, etc.


One of the best tips:
Use the tutorials from youtuber Joseph Evans

Sure! It sounds like it would be a good drama :smile:

Just a quick tip:
I’m not Italian, and I’m not sure if you are, but since your story seems to be similar to an Italian mafia story, I would recommend doing some research on the cultural background of your characters to avoid misrepresenting them as the exaggerated stereotypes that exist. Asking other people who are Italian for advice can also be a great way to do some research.

(I hope you get what I’m trying to say… I just wanted to mention this because I’ve seen several posts about misrepresentation in Episode stories and seen it first-hand myself).


first of all thankyou that is what i am going for for the drama haha and second of all no i’m not italian but i heard of that before so i am doing research to prevent misrepresenting.
thanyou so much for all the tips

i definitely recommend planning your story out in a doc! it seems super boring and tedious, but you can add color, decorate the doc, organize information and it’s just so much better than throwing random ideas down as you go!

if you need help making an organizer, let me know and I’ll make a template for you!


haha i feel so a newbie saying this but what do you mean by an organizer do you have a sample :sweat_smile:

haha it’s fine!
i mean something like a chart where you can fill out the important details for each episode!
personally, when i organize my stories, i fill out the plot for each episode, the important details, new characters that will be introduced, the opening scene, the key events and all that fun stuff!

Yep. @Xepisode.s I’m gonna be frank, as of now (and from the little I could read) your story plot seems to be falling into some clichés, plus I can kinda see some inconsistencies. Make sure to visit our shop for correct cultural representation, realistic character designs and translations.


thankyou so much this could be a great help for my story :blush:
