One Drastic Way Dramatica Helped Me

Postby Geoff1975 » Dec 02, 2012 8:54 pm

One of the most pronounced ways Dramatica helped me was in helping me discover I had written too much plot. I would notice movies had a goal for the main character which was separate from the overall story. There were character arc plots as I saw them. So, I like writing movies which are involving... those are the type I enjoy watching. The MC plot took on a life of its own and I didn't know how to integrate the two. Discovering Dramatica, I learned this MC plot really needs to become a sequel.
