Audience Appreciations

Most, if not all, of Dramatica deals with story points that the Author appreciates when looking at their story. Some story points indicate how an Audience member might appreciate the story. The difference is in the point-of-view: the Author approaches from the perspective of creating meaning; the Audience from the perspective of understanding that meaning. The Audience Appreciations define that understanding based on the storyform.


Predicting Who Will Listen To Your Story

Slight adjustments to the structure of your story can guarantee a larger audience.

Writing a story is one thing, finding an Audience to sit still and embrace your story is quite another. Many understand now that a functional narrative functions because it models the mind's problem-solving process; and many understand that men and women solve problems differently. Appreciating that difference makes it possible for writers to predict who will be drawn into their story, and who will simply be observers.
