You can!

You create the other two episodes but leave them with the INT. BLACK - DAY bit and you can publish it that way.

Just put in the title something like this TITLE {Episode 1 Only!} to let readers know so they don’t waste their passes on empty episodes :slight_smile:

still not working this what is say

You Can’t Publish Yet

Episodes 2 and 3 need at least 400 lines of text.


#8

You could add 400 lines of nonsense to episodes 2 and 3 then lock them with a password, but it’s not recommended. Your story might actually get taken down because publishing with fewer than 3 unlocked chapters is against the guidelines. So it’s possible in a way, but definitely not allowed.

Hahaha seriously


#10

Yeah. It’s a weird policy, but you’re likely to get more reads if you publish episodes in batches anyway. I think part of it is that Episode wants the money from people using passes.


#11

What if you copy and paste your first episode into episode 2 and 3?


#12

Or maybe I can start fresh :joy::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:


#13

I understand


#14

The 3 episode minimum I think is to prevent spam/floods of incomplete stories.


#15

That’s what I thought about it. :heart:

Topic closed due to violation of Forum General Rules and attempted violation of Episode rules as stated in the FAQ..

If you are in doubt concerning Episode requirements for publishing stories, make sure to review the FAQ and ask the staff. Users may give helpful advice, but they can also be wrong.

Thanks :wink:


One chapter publish
