How do you deal with long stories

I'm writing a story, and I'm finding myself getting lost so easily. I was considering moving it to a different tool, like twine, just because of the graphical map of all sections, but I'd prefer to keep using the squiffy's syntax, because I find it to be much more simple and doesn't break my creative flow when writing.

So, I got curious about how you deal with it when your interactive fiction gets too big in squiffy.

I do a few things, but one thing that comes to mind is creating a large amount of spaces between major sections. Then, when I run through the code, whenever I see a large space, I know I'm entering another major section.

Or just look at the source code of one of his games. Google mrangels "desquiff" tool for that.
