On the Need for Plot Points. More than simply a framework, they function as context for character. #screenwriting http://narrativefirst.com/articles/on-the-need-for-plot-points

Hello all,

In the ongoing effort to improve the conversation surrounding Dramatica we now have a new Discussion Board over on the central site. Running on the relatively new Discourse platform, this "forum for the 21st century" comes with some key features that should make engaging and learning about Dramatica more enjoyable and more effective.

There is a bit of a learning curve (as with all things Dramatica!) but the features are worth it. Better categorization, more room to write, Markdown support, reply directly to comments, branch threads to new conversations, full list of all thinks in a thread at the top of every post, and efficient search capabilities make this a natural progression for the theory.

Feel free to ask questions there or here, wherever you feel more comfortable. However with Google's recent snub of Google+ at their own Dev Conference, you might find more permanence over on the main site. Regardless of what you choose, hopefully you'll find what you need to help you get back to writing.

Have fun! (you can find it at http://discuss.dramatica.com)

Interested in a practical look at Dramatica #screenwriting theory in action? Here's my latest article covering the Crucial Element of any story. Hopefully the first (really the second or third) of a series showing how Dramatica works in practice (rather than just theory).

Hey everyone, super excited to announce that the official Dramatica website now has SUPER SPEED!! Try it for yourself...so much haste now that it feels like a local app. It's actually a joy using it now. So much story knowledge there just waiting at your fingertips! Hope you find it more pleasurable to use and ultimately, helpful towards your own writing. Engage!!
