I have another questions on the terminology regarding this: When I have a first idea, I usually develop a couple of main story points and story driver on a blank page and build the story form in parallel. When I have a first version done of the story outline I usually can finish the story form as well. Often at the same time but usually never before. What I don’t check during the first session is the plot progression.
According to our discussion above the process in Dramatica is
1. Story forming
Where does my outline belong to?
I some times have problems to fit a specific story point, let’s say in act 2, with any of the second signpost. Is this first outline version considered as part of storyforming? Or does it make sense to do the outline after 2. or 3? Or is my approach faulty?
Thanks for the clarification, ...
