Tale

Nothing wrong with a tale. Especially if you don't care about Audience members remembering your tale 48 hours later or you don't mind them not recommending your work to anyone else. Tales are great in the moment, but are soon forgotten as they don't add up to anything more than what they are. A Complete Story offers so much more than a Tale, and Audiences nowadays are wise to them.

Transforming Real Life into a Story

Turning the events of our lives into meaningful narrative requires an understanding of how our minds operate.

If Dramatica is a theory of story based on the psychology of the human mind, then it only follows that that very same model can be used to understand the narratives of our own lives. Real life can seem pointless at times, meaningless within the chaos of living day-to-day. Crafting a narrative gives context to the conflict, and offers meaning to our own experience.
