When Reader chooses character name How do I write them in script?


#1

I am currently writing my second story and trying to give readers more choice with name.
I have used the script template but when I preview the story on my phone app it gives the chance to enter a name but when the story reads out the speech bubbles say INKFEMALEAVATAR they don’t display the character name I type in to test the story.
When I write the script am I supposed to be using INKFEMALEAVATAR for commands and conversations?? Any help is appreciated.

I don’t really get what the problem is, but it should be something like that:
INKFEMALEAVATAR
Hi, my name is [INKFEMALEAVATAR]!

If this is what you use in the script, then the display name should be the same (if it’s something else, you can change it to that).

Example: Let’s say you created a character named YOU
.
And in the script you could write:

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your Last Name?|Done(NAME)

Further in the script:

NARRATOR
[NAME] is a gorgeous, strong girl who will kick butt.

Then you go to your characters, where it says YOU, you go to display name and write NAME.

Or you could name a character YOU and write this:

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your Last Name?|Done(YOU)

Further in the script:

NARRATOR
[YOU] is a gorgeous, strong girl who will kick butt.

So, in your case, if you created a character called INKFEMALEAVATAR (their script name as well as their display name is this), it would look like this in your script:

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your Last Name?|Done(INKFEMALEAVATAR)

Further in the script:

NARRATOR
[INKFEMALEAVATAR] is a gorgeous, strong girl who will kick butt.

I hope this helps xoxo
