Writers' Cave 💭

Honestly I was terrified of spot directing too at first, I didn’t know how to use them whatsoever, but when I learned it sorta just became a totally normal thing. Now I actually never use the coding of the screen stands, only spot directing. But yeah if you have any questions I’d be more than happy to answer them! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

But compared to other Episode stories that I’ve read and enjoyed, I don’t know there was just kind of more connection to the characters, I feel like I just kind of introduce them and then get right into the plot, is there a way I can try to make it feel like that?

Well you did just jump straight to the chase, but the way they usually get the story started is by giving some sort of passive info about the mc in a meaningful way, like how she is and how she lives her life and stuff, and the other way (which is what I prefer) is they start it off with the character talking by the narrator box (which is by writing NARRATOR (MC) write the name of the character, that way the name of the Mc will be at the top) and it sort of starts off with the Mc saying some sort of quote and relating that to her life, saying something like I’m the type of person blah blah blah, my life was just like any other, normal, until one day… etc etc, I feel like giving the story that type of intro instead of jumping to the scene where she’s back from school immediately would be a lot more attracting to the reader. But it’s all up to you. :grin:

Hi!! I was one of the reviewers who reviewed Luna Violet a year ago and I have to say I still adore the story! Keep it up!

I was just thinking, imagine if we had a button in the writers portal which allowed us to go through outfits picked out for us randomly depending on the theme we choose. :thinking:
Thoughts? :no_mouth:

yes!

Am I the only one who faces an issue with some of the “running” amimations for ink females? :thinking:
Like for example, when I make a female character use the run_cry animation, the character runs for a few milliseconds, then sorta… Floats till they reach the destination. :joy:

Hello!

Hiiiii!

I’m waiting for the day we get notified on the episode app that we’ve gotten fanmail. :thinking:
Most importantly, get notified when our fanmail messages get responded to by other authors instead of having to scroll down through a sea of comments to check.
Whatcha think?

I’m a new author to episode and I’m having a little trouble coming up with the beginning of my story. I want it to jump straight into action (it’s an apocalyptic romance story), but I don’t know how to start the first scene and introduce the main character. I have an idea about it opening in on a news report, but I don’t know what to do after that. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

We do? When and where does that happen?

Totally the right place to post this! :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
Since it’s an apocalyptic romance, why not start it off with the Mc staring at the distance of a messy area of town saying something like… “The world wasn’t always this messy.” “But here’s the story of how my heart got dragged into it.”
I don’t know, just a thought? :sweat_smile:

No, unfortunately we don’t have that feature yet, I hope we do though! :no_mouth:

Hi!

I like that! But what would I do after it? I would guess to put the news report (because I think it’s a good way to explain what is going on in a brief way), I just don’t know what to do after that.
