Thanks for the reply! I like to write for novels and short stories, so I think that's what appealed to me about Storyweaver. I've been studying Dramatica for a while and have written some "practice" stories with it and have finished one longer work and am working on another.
My process with Dramatica has been to get to where I can fill in all the Sign Post and Journey info with everything I think they need, put them in roughly the order I think they need to appear, use that info to create a detailed list of every event, moment, thought, action, or any other bit of information I think needs to appear, turn THAT list into an outline, and then use the outline to create a first draft. I'm sure I could skip from putting the SP and Journey info in order to trying to write an outline, but it's just not how I've done it. So I liked the way Storyweaver walks you through all the acts with beginning, middle, end and that sort of thing. I think I'd like to start in Dramatica and go until I have all the Sign Posts filled out, and then switch over to Storyweaver to start putting everything in order.
It also looked like Storyweaver had sections for your Story Goal and Consequences and such pretty early on which hopefully will help me to focus on the big picture of solving the problem, and not making sure that one section relates very specifically to the Past while another relates very specifically to Memories. Like the Dramatica experts say, no one comes to a story for a perfect structure. While it's nice as the author to know which part of your story is the Past and which is Memories, no one that reads it is going to care. I'd like to get away from thinking about how I'm going to perfectly fit in the Plot Sequence Report and all 64 elements exactly the way they're supposed to be. While all that stuff is fun, it takes a long time and takes me away from getting a work completed. So also I'm hoping Storyweaver will help me put things in order and get everything I need while not worrying about all that.
