Hey, I’m PurpleRadiance
I’ve been reading Episode for a while and have finally decided to get really invested in writing a story. I’ve finally settled on an idea that I think a lot of people are going to love (Hopefully!) Anyway, I’m used to writing on paper but directing has been causing me some issues as I can see it in my head based on other stories that I’ve read but can’t exactly put it into seamless code all the time.
I was hoping if anyone could send me some tips and tricks on how to make a beautiful story in any, but not limited to the following areas:
2.Backgrounds ( I would like to use more modern backgrounds that I’ve seen some authors using and I have some scenes that would require “new” backgrounds to make sense)
4.General Donacode Tiips
Choices V. Narration
How to set up as an author for Episode
Thank you guys so much! I truly appreciate any and all feedback. Have a radiant day!
OK, for an episode story, since it’s a visual app, you want to show instead of telling. Choices are also important since it’s an interactive app.
I give advice here:
Hmm, I recommend before you begin a story, practice! Practice with directing and have a plot in mind so you don’t get stuck later on. However, if you’re the type of person who just swings it and makes it all up as you go along that’s fine, too (I do that). Just note you need to have at least some goal of where your story will go. Here’s an amazing thread full of tips for writing: Tips, tricks & discussions: How to make your story better
Hope all this helps and if you need more help, feel free to reach out to me
If you ever get questions about coding or just don’t know how to start with it, then you should check Josep Evan’s Youtube channel. He has many videos about coding that actually helped me a lot :D. Or you can check Dara Amarie’s forum posts on episode (or just her official website). Good luck with writing!
