🌷 Tip: Using NARR in your story 🐧

This is a very simple and easy tutorial however regardless I wanted to share because some people may not know how to do it.

Using Narrator (pattern to follow):

NARRATOR
Dialogue.

Example:

NARRATOR
Fall is my favorite weather.

What it translates into visually:

Using Narrator with a character (pattern to follow):

NARRATOR (CHARACTER)
Dialogue.

Example:

NARRATOR (FLOWERGRIEFER)
I love Halloween a lot.

What it translates into visually:

*Background from both examples come from @FlowerGriefer and the scene is starring her :tulip:

Shortening NARRATOR to NARR (short cut, the pattern to follow):

NARR
Dialogue.

NARR (CHARACTER)
Dialogue.

Examples:

NARR
Fall is my favorite weather.

NARR (FLOWERGRIEFER)
I love Halloween a lot.

*Using NARR as opposed to NARRATOR is so much more simpler since it has less wording to it.

Another thing to note: You cannot have Dialogue alone, you need to have a character think/say it or have the NARRATOR/NARR say it.

So, incorrect:

@ANNIEWAYS stands screen center AND ANNIEWAYS faces right

What a nice day to race against penguins in the north pole.

You will get the error: Expected CHARACTER or SCENE change.

Instead you will need to fix it by writing NARR with or without a character’s name in ( ) on top of “What a nice day” or write the character’s name (in capitals) on top of “what a nice day” and add an animation to make your story come to life :penguin:

Correct (one of the ways you can do it):

@ANNIEWAYS stands screen center AND ANNIEWAYS faces right AND ANNIEWAYS starts idle

NARR (ANNIEWAYS)
What a nice day to race against penguins in the north pole.

Using NARR to describe things and talk about events that occured is a really good idea. NARR can be used for many things! Anyways, good luck with your story xoxo :penguin: :tulip:

I appreciate you trying however when you’re writing it, it would be something like this:

NARR
I don’t like this, I shall get you back…

:+1:

OMG I am so sorry. That was my sister. She got my phone. I am so sorry

That’s OK, dw about it but tell your sister to be more kind to others, kindness is good :blob_sun:

Yes, I will. And I’m going to stop her touching my phone :rofl:

I’m trying to use Narration for a couple art scenes, it’s kinda hard to know how to word it… :woman_facepalming:

Agree, sometimes descriptions can be so hard :woozy_face: But if you keep trying at it, I know you can do it :+1:
