Well, it's my first try to base something on Dramatica's brainstorming function. The story is for book 2 in a YA series. Roughly, it's about vampires. One of them has been "infected" and is in danger of turning. The characters try to prevent that. So far the specs my publisher has set. Now - in order to prevent the story from being too obvious, I try to come up with something fresh and surprising by using the brainstorming function. Dramatica came up with a Timelock Limit, Failure and Bad Judgement. That, I immensely like.
For me, it means, they fail in preventing to turn him, and that opens a range of interesting new stories within the series. The IC is the sidekick, the MC is the skeptic. The MC (Domain: Activity, Concern: Searching) is a scientist who tries to stop the transformation process. His problem is Accurate, solution Non-Accurate. The IC is the one that is going to turn (Domain: Manipulation, Concern: Playing a Role, Problem: Proven, Solution: Unproven).From that, I try to find out, what Dramatica is trying to tell me about the story. The M/I throughline (Domain: Situation, Concern: How Things Are Changing, Problem: Accurate, Solution: Non-Accurate) seems to fit in nicely - situation being the transformation.
However, I have problems with the Accurate/Proven vocabulary... Can the CE of Non-Accurate mean: The scientist tries to evaluate the anti-transformation serum by looking at how it deviates from the specification? The IC would then have to evaluate the serum by looking at how it already is within the tolerances - like a glass half full / half empty discussion.
