Well, if you need some advice, then I’m your man. So, on how to stay motivated when writing an Episode story, here are some tips. First, you should be dedicated to your story, and you should devote as much time as you can to your story. Now, I know you need time to do other things, and that’s understandable, but if you can squeeze any time into your story, then please do so.
Second, you’ll want to make a schedule for your story, and basically just write down a time of when you want to type up an episode or time when you want to type up any scenes. What I often do, is I make a schedule for each episode and I write down what day and what time I’ll type in the scenes for each episode. Let me give you an example schedule:
Schedule for Episode 5:
Sunday afternoon at 2pm - Type up first three scenes.
Sunday evening at 7pm - Type up scene where the MC meets her best friend, and they have something important to discuss.
Monday afternoon at 2pm - Type up scene where the MC and her friend goes to school. Type up scene where the LI meets the MC at her house.
Monday evening at 7pm - Type up last two scenes.
Okay now, this schedule is just for tutorial purposes only and your schedule doesn’t exactly have to be like this. Type it up any which way you please, and depending on how long your episode is (or episodes are), the schedule could be much longer or shorter than the example schedule I’ve given.
Now that I have that covered, having a schedule really helps. You can type it up on your smartphone or write it down on paper, whichever you prefer.
But anyway, creating an Episode requires dedication, discipline, and craftsmanship. Make sure you know the coding, plan your story before you type it up, and really be dedicated to it.
I hope this helps, and feel free to ask me any questions.
Thanks, and good luck with your stories.
