For fun and edification I would like to agree on a story form for this story ( here is a link to the 1964 Stop Animation TV special fan site - http:...

Re: "Misery" Throughlines

I am going to suggest that the Relationship Story concern is Conceiving an idea. The writer has written a book and the kidnapper is very unhappy that he has killed off her favorite character. The relationship is all about conceiving a new story that keeps that character alive. Kidnapper will not let...

Re: "Misery" Throughlines

I would have to say the Overall Story is Activity. and the Relationship Story is Manipulation. Most of the story focuses on the writer and the kidnapping fan and there seems to be a lot of manipulation going on in their relationship. Can you make some specific arguments as to why everyone in the ove...

Re: "Misery" Throughlines

It has been a while since I've seen it but I would say the main character is the writer and he is in situation and the kidnapper is in fixed attitude. James Caan character is kidnapped. He is stuck. Cathy Bates (is that right?) She is infatuated with the writer and his stories. I would say she defin...

Re: Psychology (the industry)

Good question. I heard Melanie Anne Phillips mention Fractal Psychology in an article. I am not sure what that is. That was the first I'd heard of it.

Re: Weaving throughlines without changing POV

That could be fun. Tell the story from the objective POV like a News Reporter. and then tell the same story from the Subjective POV in terms of the Main Character's relationship(s) with the Impact Character(s). And again from the Main Character's POV and his personal issues and finally and not neces...

Re: Weaving throughlines without changing POV

You are much farther along in writing than I. I have written one screenplay still in the draft stages. I am mostly a student of the theory of Dramatica. I see Dramatica as a tool to tell a story as if the story were a "single mind trying to solve an inequity". So use Dramatica to lay out y...

Re: Weaving throughlines without changing POV

Why couldn't POV say, "Impact did this." or , "Impact did that which had an affect on me this or that way. When you tell the overall story treatment write it from POV's saying the Protagonist did this and the Sidekick did that. The Contagonist tried to tempt the protagonist(me) and th...

Re: IC Question

I am on my way to work so will reply later but in the meantime I copied entries from the Dramatica Dictionary regarding Impact Character. I seem to remember hearing that a steadfast character's concern or problem is their drive or source of drive. Does that sound right? Sam Dramatica Dictionary I Im...

Re: IC Question

... Simply put, my understanding was that the throughline for the IC is supposed to be the area the IC will have an impact on for the MC. My MC has troubles with a fixed attitude and that was the area in which I would like to show his change. The IC has not got a fixed attitude, and in fact his fre...

Re: The Break-Up
