Hey! What are you getting ready for?

still in the bubble :confused: I wish the forums would let me show a picture

I think you may have chosen to write in spotlight instead of cinematic, which is why they are in those bubbles. You can not switch from spotlight to cinematic

HOW TO: Spotlight Format :wilted_flower:

I am new here, can you tell me how to put my story on hold?

You can put the word “hold” in your story. So when you go to the main page for your story on Writer’s Portal, where your title is (at the top) write (ON HOLD) next to it. Feel free to write it in your description if you choose not to write it on your title. You can also mention within your story using a NARRATOR’s message.

In order to make sure people people don’t read your story, you can try 2 things.

  1. Loop it (so have a message replaying)

label LOOP

NARR
This story is on hold. You can’t read it.

goto LOOP

OR:

You can password lock it, check out this thread: A Guide to Typed-in Choices

If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to ask :rose:

How do you make locked choices? Like the reason it’s locked is because they didn’t choose one point in the story.
