"Writing with the Story
Mind" is the first in the "Practical Dramatica" series
of programs. This series focuses on putting the Dramatica theory
to work in tangible, easy to follow steps.
In this program you'll:
Learn how to psychoanalyze your
story's "mind" to uncover and treat problems with
characters, plot, theme, and genre.
Find out how to tell if your story
suffers from "Multiple Personality Disorder" and what to do
Invite your story to dinner and
have it tell YOU what happens in the plot.
Discover how the story mind's
value standards should be represented in your story's theme.
Learn how to be a "good
parent" to your story and let it be it's own person, rather than
the person you wanted it to be.
Narrated by Melanie Anne Phillips,
co-creator of the Dramatica theory and software, this CD is packed
with more than an hour of practical tips and techniques you can put to
work right away, with or without the Dramatica software.
If story structure has seemed like a
complicated hodge-podge of random elements, let Writing with the Story
Mind provide the overview that ties it all together.

About Dramatica and
What They Do
Dramatica is a tool to help you
build a perfect story structure. StoryWeaver is a tool to help you build
your story's world.
Dramatica focuses on the underlying logic of your
story, making sure there are no holes or inconsistencies.
focuses on the creative process, boosting your inspiration and guiding it to add
depth, detail and passion to your story.
How They Do It
Dramatica has the world's only
patented interactive Story Engine™ which cross-references your answers to
questions about your dramatic intent, then finds any weaknesses in your
structure and even suggests the best ways to strengthen them.
StoryWeaver uses a revolutionary new
creative format as you follow more than 200 Story Cards™ step by step through
the story development process. You'll design the people who'll inhabit
your story's world, what happens to them, and what it all means.
How They Work Alone
By itself Dramatica appeals to
structural writers who like to work out all the details of their stories
logically before they write a word.
By itself, StoryWeaver appeals to
intuitive writers who like to follow their Muse and develop their stories as
How They Work
But, the finished work of a
structural writer can often lack passion, which is where StoryWeaver can help.
And the finished work of an intuitive writer can often lack direction, which is
where Dramatica can help.
So, while each kind of writer will
find one program or the other the most initially appealing, both kinds of
writers can benefit from both programs.
