on Inciting Incident

Another nightmare concept of narrative that should go the way of the Dodo, the Inciting Incident is supposed to indicate the start of a story. The tens upon thousands of subjective interpretations of where that start lies require true narratists to ban the concept from their vocabulary. Better to understand Dramatica's concept of the Story Driver and how that works in concert with the inequity that exists at the center of every story.

Rid yourself of writer's block. Forever.
