Writing with Dramatica

We have been exploring Dramatica at Avikoo Studios (where I work at), and our first impression was that it was a very limiting writing tool.

A couple of weeks later though, we discovered how powerful a tool it could prove to be, specially when you understand that the software works along with you, providing a framework to thread your ideas.

I have to admit that it does take a while to understand the terminology that the authors use. We have been studying it for around a year now. The science behind this "Dramatica Theory" is so ample and thorough, that I couldn't believe anyone could actually grab all this information in a shorter period of time.

All in all, I would definitely recommend any writer to give Dramatica a try with any story he/she has previously developed and see what comes out of it.

I'll be posting some tips about using this theory to improve your stories.
