Introduced to the world with the release of Dramatica Story Expert, Gists make life way easier when it comes to working with the theory. Before you might have terms like Conceptualizing or Reduction or Induction to deal with in your story. Now you have Scheming to Steal the Money or Keeping One's Backpack Light or Inferring Something about Someone. Bridging the gap between structure and storytelling, Gists bring Authors closer to their material.
