Revamping the Narrative: Subtxt's Latest Framework Enhancements

Subtxt updates methods, appreciations, and abstraction tones

At Narrative First, our mission to provide the very best creative writing app is an ongoing journey. This commitment involves a constant evolution and development of the foundations of our narrative framework. We strive to avoid stagnation in 20th-century thinking regarding the relationships between concepts within the framework.

To stay at the forefront, we continuously evaluate and measure responses between Subtxt and the AI services we integrate with, ensuring alignment with the best practices of the framework. As we adapt to advancements in large language models, some concepts and terminology require updates to better serve our users and maintain relevance.

Updated Methods

We have refined two methods of conflict to better encapsulate their narrative roles:

  • Free is now Abandon

    • Abandon: This method represents a character who scatters their energy in all directions, embracing total immersion in their environment without regard for boundaries or constraints. It highlights a breaking away from traditional limits, offering a sense of liberation. However, excessive abandon can lead to a loss of focus and potential relational strains due to erratic behaviors.
  • Unending is now Continuing

    • Continuing: This method fosters perseverance and an unwavering pursuit of goals. It views potential endpoints as opportunities for redirection and resilience. While this trait fuels motivation and helps overcome challenges, it can also hinder recognition of necessary conclusions, potentially impeding progress.

Updated Appreciations

To enhance clarity, especially in narratives involving Female Mental Sex, we have updated the appreciation formerly known as Revision:

  • Revision is now Adjustment (OS Adjustment, MC Adjustment, OC Adjustment, RS Adjustment)
    • This change also applies to the Relationship Story Throughline in Male Mental Sex stories, ensuring a consistent and clear communication of this concept.

Abstraction Tones

We have also refined the Abstraction Tones to better define their roles as storytelling elements:

  • Situation is now Situation(s)
  • Activity is now Action(s)
  • Mentality is now Justification(s)
  • Standpoint is now Position(s)

These updates not only maintain the functional essence of these tones but also enhance their communicative clarity by emphasizing their plural aspects, which reflect the multiple dimensions they can represent in a narrative.

We are excited about these updates and are committed to continuously refining our tools to keep pace with technological advancements. As we grow and expand, we ensure that our narrative framework does too, always aiming to provide you with the best possible resources for your creative endeavors.

Thank you for being part of our journey. We look forward to bringing you more updates as we evolve together in the ever-expanding landscape of narrative creation.
