Re: Mental Relativity

And finally, shake your heads like I just did. The medium of text on the internet has diminished the ability to interpret clearly the intent of the Author because of bolding, highlighting, or any other method of making something stand out. When I visited my father a couple weeks ago, he would use ai...

Re: Follow-up to PSR

Yeah, there is a lot that has been addressed elsewhere and so much I have read, but understanding is perspective and context and that is where I fall a lot. I was just coming here to say "nevermind" because it finally clicked that PSR is a structural view of (as you say) End User experienc...

Re: Mental Relativity

... um, er... or is the continuation of the discussion of Mental Relativity actually the book Dramatica: A New Theory of Story?? Surely, that is application, but the exploration of the two Awarenesses in biological preference for which element to stand on first was so much to digest that I am now ex...

Re: Mental Relativity

I just finally digested Mental Relativity It discusses Mind and ends with saying it will discuss when minds interact in Psychology next. I don't think the two diagrams are what was promised with the last paragraph. Am I missing that second part or is it not anywhere to be found? I mean has the entir...

Follow-up to PSR

Please bear with me, I am recovering from surgery and may not come across well. Observations: The PSR shows a very good example of where the Plot and Theme get out of phase and how seeing the problem gets warped. Right? Chris, you said that the order of plot is important, because that order holds th...

Re: Story to Story Form & Story Form to Story

I have yet to focus on my Want to get the Group started. I tend to focus on Should, believe I Can, know I Need to, but without a solid Want, it goes nowhere. Mainly, there is fear from experience that believing I Can and actually being able to when faced with it prove emotionally restrictive. -- jus...

Re: Story to Story Form & Story Form to Story

Thanks. :) I have had Dramatica resources for quite a while now and recently received Dramatica Pro 4 from Santa (thanks Santa). The amount of time we want to spend is a major consideration I am wrestling with right now. Since our group is dealing with books and the group interest is in becoming Mas...

Story to Story Form & Story Form to Story

For the Dramatica User's Group in Austin, I am trying to use story analysis and story creation for practical application in becoming Master Storytellers. How far should an analysis be taken? All the way to chapter coverage, character coverage, and everything on the Story Points Outline? How far shou...

Re: Story Static Points

I find it easier to try to make sure I understand before just continuing with an exploration. Seems harder for people to follow when I don't ask for clarification. Patience is very easy online. :) 1) I think not. If the requirement and the consequence are the same, then you are reaching the goal and...

Re: Story Static Points

Hello, I don't understand, but it is good to communicate. 1) Can Static Story Points be repeated? Why would you repeat them? 2) If I know what the requirement will be, is it useful to choose the Type? Choosing the Requirement is a Type. What do you mean? Did you illustrate the Requirement and now ch...

White Christmas Analysis

This is my first attempt at analyzing a story by myself. I keep putting stories on my list and just never get to them. This one was played several times because of the season and so, here is the attempt. I tried going deeper, but things get mixed up for me. I am also not sure a storyform can be comp...

I read my thoughts above and I'm not sure I had things right. So take it all with a grain of salt. :)

Re: Difference Between Requirements and Options?

I would like to think through it. Story Goal: Selling a House (Doing) Requirements: Things obtained in order to sell the house (Obtaining? Dynamic Pair of Doing) Option-Lock: What produces the tension in the story? Running out of time or running out of options? The Bucket List made me feel as if thi...

Re: Hello

Thank you, Chris. Pulling from your answer to my other question (about Analysis on my blog and seeing them uploaded to Dramatica.com), I think I understood you to say, "post it to the forums" which would be here. Should I post them in any particular area or just select Practical Dramatica?...

Re: Brainstorming Help: Optionlock

I am new to the storytelling and this is a good question for me to think about too. I think option-locks depend on whether you want options to balance through organic addition and removal or resolve until they run out. The number seems to depend on the emphasis within the story. So, an entire Act mi...

Hello

Greetings.

Happy Holidays.

My name is Chadwick. Hello from Austin, Texas.

I want to find or start a User Group here in Austin. Are there guidelines, or is it like starting any community group at a library (for example)? Do I need to be certified in Dramatica? How does that happen?

Thank you.
