Here to help you first time writers


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:


Well, that’s nice. :wink:


Thank you :blush:not sure how much help I can be :joy:

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


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.

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 “”) {
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
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


Thank you so much


How many chapters should an episode approximately be??


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


It worked for me THANKS


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?

&YOU is talk_excited_happy THEN pause for 0.5 THEN YOU is talk_exclaim_yes
That would be a good idea!

@Minoesje but like that the character will say everything after making the animations, whatever the character is saying I want it while doing the animations
