I just (re)discovered the Plot Sequence Report, which I have tried to use month ago but couldn't figure at this time the purpose at all.
For any one interested I can recommend to read on this topic Jim Hulls post on narrativefirst.com and the book Jim is mentioning from Armando Mora. Using the PSR its really enlightening and gives you a much better grip on a scene having an outside (plot) and inside (theme) view.
But as usual with dramatica, if 1 question has been answered a bunch of new ones pop-up:
If I am using the concern "Doing" as in "OS 1, Scene 1: Doing as it relates to Fate:" as plot e.g. "a class writes an exam" then "Fate" is the theme
If have got..
"OS 1, Scene 1: Doing as it relates to Fate: "
"Doing" for the Plot (outside view), e.g. "pupils write an essay at school"
- Experience - some have lack of experience on the given topic
- Skill - some have a spelling weakness
- Wisdom - some doesn't know how to handle the topic efficiently
- Enlightenment - some believe "waffling" will help
"Fate" for theme:
- Jack had a big party last night and has difficulties to focus
- Lisas brother past away tow weeks ago and she has difficulties to concentrate
To my understanding to explore the Issue "Fate" as theme .. this is the scene to do so. But when do I explore Skill, Wisdom... this Issues are used in this scene "only" for illustration (for the objective view) and the issues are not explored at all (at least not in this scene)?
