Re: Future of MM Screenwriter

Well, Once again I posted with an impulsive optimism, while at work, as if I had this brilliant idea that would show the way for MM Screenwriter to greatness and avoid the mistakes of Final Draft that needed to get out immediately. (Did I learn nothing from watching Pinocchio?) I was listening to Sc...

Re: Writing with Dramatica

Thanks. :) I'm going to have to read that a few times to wrap my head around it. Silly of me to ask for a definitive answer. Yes, it is just up to me to make a choice, but you understand what I mean. I guess I first will have to break down my rough draft to the point where I am able to say, "th...

I know there is not just one way to move forward from here and I've heard the advice about setting Dramatica aside because I've done th...

Re: Plot Sequence Materials Report

…or would it be more like the players in the overall story see/feel/experience things as the Plot Sequence's lay them out but the General on the Hill sees the story happening as it it laid out on the Theme Browser single story form?

Re: Quadrants
