              The Final Word on Generating Dramatic Tension in Your Story

              Episode #39

              In addition to wrapping up the events of last month, we showcase two interviews—one with a writer new to Dramatica and the other, with a writer who discovered Dramatica.

              Dramatica will save your life. Whether within the story room or out there in the real world, Dramatica’s unique understanding into what makes narrative—and therefore us—work allows you to weather any storm. In the story room, where you’re constantly barraged by one story note after the next, Dramatica’s storyform helps ensure that you don’t lose sight of your original intent. In the real world, the idea that there is no real solution—only different contexts—ensures that one day we might enjoy a little bit of world peace.

              We then finish off our series on Generating Dramatic Tension by taking a look at narratives with a Four-Act structure and discuss how looking at story structure holistically might just be the thing you need to do in order to complete your beloved novel or screenplay.

              The Dramatica Mentorship Program - our premier service designed to give you the tools and techniques for applying Dramatica’s powerful concepts to your stories.
