I liked that I could think about creating fun genre type stories, not pressured into creating great literature, I guess. It seemed like I had read thousands of sci-fi stories in the 50’s and 60’s, and the same with romances in the 80’s and 90’s (before the publishers only wanted soft p). Seeing the variety possible within a genre was a great experience, and I found many studied the length and breadth of writing stories that way. Also mysteries, later, became a wonderful place to go for those readers and writers chased away by the more explicit and bleak requirements of publishing. (I became such a Roman mystery junkie)
I would love to have a Dramatica Plot Pattern program, maybe using gists and genre mixes, bouncing from the v.1.6 simplicity. After all, there is mention of Star Trek as a science fiction western. It would be so much fun to target exactly what you enjoy writing. I don't know if that makes sense. I conceived of great, lengthly paragraphs to express what I want to convey, but I don't want to bore you.
