Unexpected Error Help

mustread

#1

I don’t understand this error. Can someone please help?


#2

I don’t know if it will solve the problem, but you forgot to put NARRATOR before Meghan: I heard… try it :slight_smile:


#3

It still doesn’t work. :confused:


#4

It thinks NEW MESSAGE is a character name.
Try putting either a full stop, exclamation mark or question mark at the end of NEW MESSAGE
Or try writing it like
New Message
