Why We Recommend This:
"This is a time commitment and (admittedly) an expensive one. But if you can afford it, answer all the questions. 120 hours later, it will be worth it. This software steps you through all the philosophy of story and will help you plan out every minute detail, character, chapter, and scene of your book."
Got a story in mind? How about an idea for a story? Either way, Dramatica Story Expert is a great place to start. As your creative writing partner, it takes you to a special place-a story development environment where together you’ll solve the plot and character problems that prevent many good stories from becoming great enough to sell. You’ll cast and build your characters, plot out your story, layer in themes with universal meaning, and put it all together into scenes to form a solid step outline.
As your mentor, Dramatica does something no other program can do-it predicts parts of your story based on creative decisions you make! You’ll be delighted to see how many of your creative choices Dramatica agrees with-and amazed when it presents ideas you haven’t thought of yet. You’ll be inspired to incorporate those ideas into your developing story and make it even tighter-with no plot holes or character inconsistencies! Dramatica Story Expert is the newest version based on the Dramatica story development system. It has something to teach aspiring writers and established professionals. Building on Dramatica Pro’s outstanding question and answer system, Dramatica Story Expert lets you customize Dramatica’s terminology with “gist’s,” short descriptive phrases, so that questions conform to your writing style and the story’s subject matter.
One of Dramatica Story Expert’s more advance features is the new Master Story Engine. The master story engine gives you fifty-six story points with which to control the story’s underlying story form. As you make specific story point choices, Dramatica’s interactive story engine shows the effect on the remaining story points. By identifying the parts of the story you know best first, the story engine automatically identifies the implied items that support your choices. Dramatica is the only system that can tell you more about your underlying story dramatics than you tell it.
