Story Telling, Story Encoding or Story Illustrating

Postby grgwrzbcki » May 14, 2008 10:02 am

Please clarify the difference (if any) between the terms:
(1) story telling (defined in the Dramatica dictionary),
(2) story encoding (used in Dramatica online tutorial but not defined in dictionary), and
(3) story illustrating (used in Dramatica 4.1 but not defined in dictionary).

Thanks.

In Dramatica terms, Storytelling, Storyencoding, and Story Illustrating are the same. The different uses of the terms comes from the gradual modification of the Dramatica language over the past decade and a half.

Note: Storytelling is a bit looser in definition than the other two. Depending on its use, it may refer to either or both the Storyencoding and Storyweaving parts of story development. By contrast, Storyencoding and Story Illustrating are the same.
