side note: this ended up being longer than expected
When I first started on episode, I was like “I’m going to finish every story before I start another…” And that was maybe like… this time last year?
Then I think limelight was released and I wanted to mess around with it for a bit, so I created a new story and then I suddenly had a great idea for said new story and I wrote like the first two chapters, but I stuck to my original plan to not start a new story until I’ve finished the first. (Story in question is still unpublished)
AND THEN the star power contest came around, so I was like “I’m so going to do this, I have a great idea!” So I did a short story for that. The third chapter is the end, so that wasn’t so bad, but I did neglect my first story a bit.
Then the spotlight contest came out, and I was like I’m going to do this one too… So I started a story, but my idea for that was going to take more than three episodes, and I couldn’t have that because that would be 2 ongoing stories at the same time. So I saved that story for later and wrote a whole new story for the spotlight contest and kept it at three episodes.
Then when the hero and villains contest came out, again I was like “yes, I can do this!” but because I put so many choices that matter into that one, I was like “I can’t fit the ending in the third chapter” there was just so much branching.
So currently, I have two stories published on episode that are incomplete and I’m working on the both simultaneously, and two that I’m still technically working on but I’m saving up for when I finish the published ones.
