Re: Scene & Sequel in Dramatica

I wondered where the Swain suggestions came in also, and I finally decided that those are writing techniques that fit inside whatever structure you've decided on with Dramatica. The Swain "scenes" and "sequels" fit inside the Dramatica Journey's or signposts. They're not incompat...
