I’ve got a rough idea for a story/game/thing I’d like to try putting together with choicescript, but first I need to ask a few questions.
I should mention before I begin that I’m not a writer at all, and my use of punctuation isn’t all that good.
When a character is speaking, I tend to type their name and then add a colon after it before any of their dialogue. I suppose you could call it part of my writing style from not using punctuation correctly.
Example – Edward: "This works for me. Does it work for you?"
Would this be considered an acceptable approach to character interaction?
As already mentioned (and probably noticed by some), my punctuation could do with some improvement. Sometimes I do try to improve it, but honestly it doesn’t quite work out (or maybe it’s a memory problem). Anyway, is it acceptable for me to stick to the basics while trying to do the best I can overall?
I’m wondering about something related to the license. Upon starting My First ChoiceScript Game I noticed the first page was for the license. Is it necessary for it to be there, or can it be erased?
I would like to avoid any potential problems relating to the license, which is why I’m asking this question.
If I go ahead with this, I plan to try and keep things mostly simple, so I don’t accidently confuse people for no reason. Well, there’s that and the fact this will be the second attempt I’ve ever made at writing a story within the timeframe of about a decade now.
