Read the articles and practice a lot.
Just read some of the featured stories in whatever category is your favorite, read a couple articles, and you'll be all set. You don't even need to know more to the editor than connecting pages if you want to write a simple story (simple in terms of branching).
One thing that people on this site hate is "Chapters", because those actually exist within your storygame and people really don't want to read an unifinished product.
So I wanna follow-up with what I said previously, but just with the idea of practice. It seems you have a good desire write and improve, but, after reading some of your story, there is a clear need for refinement. This isn't bad thing; everyone needs refinement. My suggestion is start with something much smaller, and then work yourself up. Flash fiction is a great way to start off the basics of story creation/structure. It also helps enormously with how to write a story with good flow and transitions, and I think it goes without saying that it helps with practicing grammar, syntax, etc.
How exactly you go through the writing process can vary, but one of my favorite ways to practice basic story structure is working from a 6 word story to a 1000 word story. The idea is to include exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution in each version of the same story. Here is Ernest Hemingway's famous example of a six word story:
"Baby shoes, for sale, never worn."
If you go through the whole process, then you will turn that 6 word story into a
100 word story
300 word story
It's a good way to practice a lot of basics before you get into creating a 5+ rating storygame.
Although I'm not a completely "established" story writer here yet, I think I have some valuable contribution when it comes to the writing and refining aspect.
I recommend editing, editing, editing, editing. For me, most of the time what I write first does not end up being the final copy, but more a rough description of the main ideas or events I want to convey. Like the "facts." It's from editing it the right way it becomes like having an "experience" through the words.
My mindset when editing is to read it as if I wasn't the one who wrote it at all, and just get what the words are putting out, independent of all the stuff I already know about the story. Get what the words are saying as if you don't know anything about the story already, because that's what a new reader is going to read. I like to view it in the story viewer even to really get a feel of the whole experience. Then when you get into the editing, and really having the ideas you want to put and jumping into that world, it's like painting in a sense.
Oh, and have patience
No, please. I beg you! Not another one! Please no!
Poor grammar and spelling, inconsistent capitalization, unfinished branches... have you even looked at your story?
Love the enthusiasm. Now rewrite your story 25 times over the course of three years, and then publish the link after getting your mom and all your friends to test it for you first.
Are you sarcastically attacking Wizzy or did you mean to respond to the noob?
I'm not quite sure sam knows what threaded view is
