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:

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
