This advice is very helpful. Honestly I was a guest for, 2 years. Now I'm making my own story and number 9 and 7 is very helpful. That is annoying. If I wanted that I'd go to a second grade classroom.
... Your reply brought back a thread older than five of my cousins.
I believe Fleshy has made this into an article. I was slightly confused while I read this until I realized it was seven years old.
This is mostly YOU DON'T SAY crap that applies for everything. That's what I hate about many of the writers on this site, because they fail to fulfill the basic parts of any narrative/story.
Extra advice: Try making a single-branch story like normal. Then, see which crucial elements would create another branch in the story, and work on that until you're done. Rinse, lather and repeat until you've decided that there are no more branches to fill up. That means that you have to do EVERY SINGLE BRANCH, even if you don't want to.

For a minute i thought this post was actually a little current. It is nowhere near that though..... good advice i guess haha
All of these are great tips! I don't really agree with #2, since I'm doing a very loose and funny game called Myrtle the Turtle right now and it's going great for me, but it could be different for someone else. Other than that, though, these tips will really help me! Thanks!
