How do you write your visual novels?

#1 Post by 4nh » Wed Oct 12, 2016 12:36 am

Hey there,

It's been a while since I'm back to making visual novels with Renpy. There's one question that's been nagging me: how do you write your novels? Do you write directly on Renpy or write in a normal, linear form then program it later?

I'd love to hear your take and experiences!

Cheers,
Anh

I used to write directly in the text editor, but now I find it way easier to write it in Word and then add the coding later.

This question's been asked once or twice before, so I don't think we need a new thread.
