a-scenes, b-scenes, c-scenes, etc...

Maybe this is in the manual, but I couldn't find it. I've been using Screenwriter for all of a day. I am writing a thriller with three stories, an a-story, b-story, c-story. Using the Outline function of the Navi-Doc, is there a way to write beats in sequence, then parse them out? Beats are brown, f...

DUAL MAIN CHARACTERS...

Hi, below is an analysis of Usual Suspects I pulled from the Dramatica website-- I'm wondering if someone can direct me to an article that discusses how dual main characters are handled.

Changing Temporality a la Usual Suspects

I have a story that I'm writing with Usual Suspects as the temporal/structural model - 2 time periods - the protagonist is in the present, recounting the past, maybe lying about it, and the Kujan character (impact character) eventually gets fooled into letting the protagonist go.

Re: Query
