Hey my fellow Episodians.
I started writing in 2018 but due to my job I left the community in 2020. A few months ago I started writing again and couldn’t help but notice some changes. I’m still trying to figure out how the things around here work now.
Therefor I have a few questions on your personal preferences when reading (or writing) a story. If someone would take time to help me out, I’d forever be grateful.
-Is there a certain genre you absolutely love or dislike? (for what reason?)
-Are there cliches you like or dislike? (which ones?)
-Would you rather read a story that mainly focuses on the romantic relationship of two (or more) characters or that only features romance as a subplot?
-How do you feel about supporting characters? Do you enjoy getting to know more about them (regardless if they are liked or disliked) or should their appearances be kept to a minimum?
-Do you prefer a confident or shy MC?
-Is it important to you, to get to know the love interest within the first scenes? (regardless what is recommended)
-Which personality traits do you like/dislike? (as for the main character and love interes?)
-MC’s and LI’s relationship:
slow-burn or fast paced?
enemies to lovers or love at first sight?
do you like the MC or the LI to make the first step? (in a romantic context)
-Would you rather have many choices or few impactful ones? (or both)
-How important are outfit choices on a scale from 1 to 10? (1 = not important at all)
-If you spend gems in community stories: On what kind of content do you usually use gems? (early access, bonus scenes, regular choices…)
-Your opinion on steamy scenes! (obviously as steamy as possible on this app)
-Narration: the less the better or enjoyable?
- What are absolute pet peeves of yours?
Thank you so much for reading (and hopefully answering some questions ) in advance,
