I have quite a few stories planned, but I’ll share how many episodes I plan for them to have below
My Stories // Planned Amount of Episodes
These stories are listed in OOU, or Order of Urgency. The top stories are planned to come out first while the bottom stories are planned to come out last.
- Gray Skies // 35 Episodes
- Shadows Before Dawn // 26 Episodes
- Storm After Dawn // 30 Episodes
- Short Story: Star’s Apology - YouTube Exclusive // 5 Episodes
- The Daylight Souls // 50 Episodes Per Book
- Faraway Friends // 20 Episodes
To me, it depends which type of story it is. A story’s length depends on all kinds of factors. I try to make my episodes last at least 20-30 minutes, unless it’s a special chapter (listed below), then make those around 5-15 minutes.
What I Consider Special Chapters
- Truth or Dares
- Prologues / Pilots
One factor that plays into story length is experience. You have to know how to keep readers drawn to the story if you want them to read over 40 Episodes. If the story has bad directing, unappealing grammar mistakes, or a drawn out or stupid plot, then the readers won’t want to read more than 30 chapters at most. That’s just a little tip for ya.
Basically, like most other people said. Go for the plot; quality rather than quantity; don’t drag on the story for longer than it needs to be.
