Now that you have set up a second scene,
use it to continue your story.
In this video you will create dialog
between the main character
and the new character you added in the last video.
You will also bring back your glitch.
To start add some dialog for both characters.
In this example Banana Joe acts surprised
to see Molly appear.
How would the characters in your story respond,
if someone unexpectedly appeared?
Start your main character's dialog in this scene
with a when backdrop switches to block.
Make sure the backdrop is the second backdrop
for your story.
Use wait and save for two seconds blocks
to sequence dialog between the characters.
After you build out dialog for this scene,
add another glitch.
You already wrote code for a glitch, now you will reuse it.
In computer science this type
of code reuse is called a procedure.
Computers often perform the same action
many different times in a program.
Placing the code for a specific action,
into a procedure allows the program
to call the procedure when ever it needs
to make that action happen.
To make a procedure in Scratch, make a new block.
In this case you would make a glitch block
that you can reuse.
Click make a block.
Name the block glitch, and click okay.
You created a defined block.
The code you add under the define block will run
each time the new block is run.
Add the code for your glitch under the define block.
Click the define block
to make sure it contains the correct code.
Next add the glitch block from the more blocks menu,
back into your code.
Click the flag to test.
Great, it still works.
Use the glitch block again
to create a glitch in the second scene of your story.
Try it again.
Awesome, now that you've created a block for the glitch,
you can use it whenever you'd like a glitch
to happen in your story.
In the next video you will conclude your story
and learn other ways you could add to it.
Now it's your turn.
For your main character,
use a when backdrop switches to block to continue dialog.
Use save for two seconds and wait blocks
to build more into your story.
Create a glitch block and use it twice in your story.
