The Difference Between Becoming And Being In Dramatica
Apply oneself to the study of the differences in the types of conflict found within a complete narrative.
With the Dramatica theory of story you do more than simply fit your Hero into a prearranged journey of sequences. In sharp contrast, you assume the role of Author and determine the source of conflict in your narrative's individual storylines. While the end result is greater effectiveness in communicating your story's unique thematic message, it can be difficult figuring out exactly where your conflict falls.

The top level of the Dramatica Table of Story Elements emphasizes Genre. By juxtaposing a set of objective sources of conflict against another set of subjective sources, the Author creates a personality for the Audience to inherit. Genres and Sub-genres develop from this unique narrative ID.
