Re: characters and PSR

Hey Jeff, Here is the email Dramatica support sent me. Hi Steven -- You are correct, they are different, but it is not a bug, it is a feature. Here is a Dramatica tip that answers your question: http://dramatica.com/theory/tip_of_month/tips/tip1203.html Best regards, Chris Huntley Write Brothers Inc...

Re: characters and PSR

OK Jeff, its going to be an ongoing discussion I think. Between you and me, I have the downloaded book 'Dramatica' the 4th Edition, and its terribly written, Very confusing. As far as the theme browser, I do have my story selected... I emailed them on their website, so when I get my answer i'll post...

Re: characters and PSR

Hey Jeff let me ask you a quick question: I started working with your diagram, and I am looking at the theme browser for my story. Under OS act 1, the 4 themes are openness, preconception, delay and choice. Fine. BUT when I look at the plot sequence report for my story, it say the OS act themes are ...

Re: characters and PSR

Thanx Jeff, That sounds good, i'll try that. So you draw 4, 16 point stars? 1 star for each throughline, and the 16 point are 4 thematic idea's per act, 4X16?

Re: characters and PSR

Am I to assume that when my plot sequence report tells me that, for example, the OS act 1 deals with The Future (explored in terms of enlightenment, wisdom, skill, experience) that it is up to me at that point to inject those 4 explorations in act 1, or is there another mechanism within Dramatica wh...

Build Characters Window

I have questions about the build characters screen: Once characters are assigned elements on 'the chess board", there is a series of relationships established based on diagonal, vertical and horizontal placements. Then we are able to jot notes describing the characters element assignment in the...

Re: Changing Temporality a la Usual Suspects

If I were you, I would create 2 separate story forms, like 2 'sub-plots. Work through both, maybe use the short story templates, then combine, or weave the 2 finished separate story forms into one novel

Re: ATTENTION LA BASED DRAMATICA MAVENS -- LOOKING FOR TUTOR

I find the best way to learn this program is to just keep using it. As I work on my plots and themes, etc. as questions pop up I tackle them one at a time, I gave up months ago on trying to learn the 'whole' program at once, its too complex and nuanced.

Re: Theme - struggling with terminology

Hey pal,

Did you download the PDF file on the book Dramatica: A new Theory of Story? In the back there is a dictionary. My take is that Approach refers to the methods one uses to solve a problem; attitude refers to a characters temperament while employing those methods (or Approach).

I am having trouble applying these story points; My Impact Characters Issue is Knowledge, her counterpoint is Thought. I get the definitions of these terms, but I don't understand the usage of issue vs.counterpoint in the story. E.g. IC's Issue is Knowledge. In my story her knowledge (what she holds...
