I understand the three demensional theory of Events and Scenes, but are there any examples/tips that SHOW application ? "So, each Event in a Scene will have a 1,2,3,4 for sequential order, a P,R,C,O, for context, and be a Situation (Universe), Attitude (Mind), Activity (Physics), and Mentality (Psychology)." (Quote from "Scenes & Elements" by Melanie Anne Phillips at Storymind).

No, there are not any examples like that, primarily because scenes tend to be more organic than that, as well as the fact that the 1234 and PRCO are not available to users in the current versions of the software.

I my opinion, there is no "right" way to create a scene. There are many right ways to do it. The structure templates shipped with Dramatica Pro and Writer's DreamKit show some generic scene progressions and suggest scene content, but you can modify them to your story's needs.

Thank you. I ordered Dramatica and StoryWeaver from StoryMind and am (anxiously?) waiting for them to arrive.
