How long did it take you to get use to writing an episode story?


#2

2 weeks! It gets easier


#3

About a month


#4

It’s not really funny writing a story but when you’re done It is funny to see what have you created.For my It took about 3-4 weeks :wink:


#5

A year to make my first story, this is because I focused on advanced directing. :heart:


#6

It took me 4 months to get the hang of it and publish my first story, but I don’t think I really got used to it until I had been writing for 6 or 7 months, maybe.


#7

Was it worth that long?


#8

Depends what you define as worth it?


#9

Worth making episodes for 4 months and then finally getting use to it. Was it hard those months before?


#10

Yes, absolutely. I started it one night thinking it would take me a clue of hours to make a story. Then I spent a week straight just reading the guides alone! I was so wrong to think it would take a few hours.

In fact, I wish I had held back longer before publishing because any time I came across an error I couldn’t fix, I’d just change the whole scene so I didn’t have to figure it out. Whereas now, I can actually understand the errors and know what to do to fix them.

It was hard at first, but worth it in terms of me feeling proud of what I publish. I still go back and fix scenes that’s I’m not entirely happy with once I learn how to fix what it is that bothers me about particular scenes.

I had the same problem about month or so ago. Now, I know what to do. It’s taken me about 6 months to get to 4 episodes because the story is so complex to write.


#12

A few weeks learning the basics. Two months of persistent writing to memorize advanced coding and forms of code.


#13

Yeah, like getting the hang of it is one thing, but as soon as you attempt to make choices matter, it’s a whole new ball park


#14

So true, it took me almost until episode three to just learn the complex choices. That was a real pain.


#15

I’d say 2 to 3 weeks for me :smile:
EDIT: I meant for the basics like entering/exiting, outfits, dialogue and animations etc.


#16

A few weeks for the simpler stuff and a few months for advanced. BUT I noticed if I take a break I become WAY too rusty -_- “why’s a code?” “who’s a spot directing?”


#17

it took me a year.
That’s cause I needed time to learn all the basics
And I needed time to think about the plot of the story.
