Story Theory

The only theory worthy of your time at this point in time is Dramatica. Built on a model of the psychology of the human min and not built on the experience of watching hundreds of films, the Dramatica theory of story sees a great story as representing a model of our minds at work. Story holes and weak or unmotivated characters show up because the Author failed to follow the mind's process of problem-solving. Dramatica helps an Author mold their story into that familiar and ever-lasting process.
