Oops, sorry @Lakis, I totally forgot about that draft blog post! I blame Christmas and of course my epic (read: stupidly long) novel draft that I'm still working on. Finally published it (the blog post, not the book!) today.
@Hunter, thanks for the great topic. Sorry it took me so long to do a proper response.
Note that none of these have much to do with Dramatica. I'd say Dramatica helps a lot with the "coming up with and validating ideas" part of writing, all the way from the story to the scene level. But my inner editor usually leaves me alone during those stages anyway.
(EDIT: oops, sorry, I meant to post this as a reply to the original topic. I think I had a draft post that messed things up.)
