Here to help you first time writers

#1

Hello! So thought I’d start up a thread where I can help the people who have just started to write as we all know how hard it can be and we’ve all been there and it’s a nightmare! Sometimes YouTube videos don’t help I learnt through friends and also I learnt myself, it took some time but I got there eventually. So if anybody wants to ask any kind of question then hit me up I’ll be happy to help :grin:

How do u allow a reader to choose their own name?

#5

Heya! Sorry I’ve only just seen your message. To let the readers choose their own name I’ll show you what I put in my script as I’ve allowed readers to name 3 characters.

NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?

label first_name_input
input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FIRSTNAME)
if (FIRSTNAME is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}
Just let me know how you get on :slight_smile:

How many episodes is a recommended length? Also how many lines should an episode be? Thanks

On the guides it says between 1500-2000 anything below that is considered short

#10

Thank you so much

#11

How many chapters should an episode approximately be??

#12

How many chapters? Well to publish you have to have at least 3 chapters but all in all it doesn’t matter how long your story is so that’s entirely up to you

Hi, I’m new to this and I don’t know how to do two successive animations while the character is talking… like
@CHARACTER is talk_excited_happy THEN CHARACTER is talk_exclaim_yes_happy how can I make the character talk while doing those animations?
