I think I’m good on dialogue because I’ve always struggled with more dialogue and if it wasn’t dialogue, intricate descriptions. More talk and less action, is what I mean.
I’ve written in other outlets, whether it was measly fanfiction or my own shots out of boredom. The stories were received very well, even the discontinued ones. But my issue was always less action and more emotional dialogue.
Episode gives me a fresh take on writing, even when I have to compress it. That way, I can work on the flaws of what writing I have. Work on action than just dialogue, since it’s a visual experience too.
With 400 lines, it’s way too limited and outright lazy. I’d rather spend more time creating a decent episode even if it’s a long awaited update than piss off readers with a short episode.
I’ve noticed clique-y (overrated or not) authors rely on their popularity (often not even the best of writers tbh) to get away with this, while somehow retaining readers. This won’t just affect amateurs, but give more growth to popular writers that may not even deserve it over the more hidden gems other users create.
