Just out of curiosity as I would like to know how you deal with this kind of stories ..
I hv outlined a short story - without thinking dramatica - and ended up with 16 scenes.
Story: Jack, a vivacious and spontaneous live wire, who has problems with keeping commitments freaks out as he is laid-off by his principled Boss George. While losing is confidence he must decide to take back his old job with changed conditions or do something completely new.
Usually my first place to go before developing a story is dramatica. But as I didn't start this time from dramatica I figured out the storyform "manually" afterwards.
1) I assigned a point-of-view for each scene which I thought is the best (MC, IC, RS or OS)
2) I checked the quads and figured for my story the best one is the motivation quad (Future, Obtaining, Becoming, Innermost)
3) As I have 16 scenes I thought I can assign 1 main-issue per scene
Until this point it worked very well, but not surprisingly I ended up with scenes for my domains or point of views (MC, IC, OS, RS) in multiple classes. For example I have now 3 scenes for IC Situation and 1 scenes in Activity or 2 scenes for RS in Manipulation and 2 scenes for RS in Mind.
I know I could change it, but that is my question: Whats the better more effective approach for the story?
- Run as is .. I will try it out and write
- Run 16 scenes through only 1 Class .. for example only Manipulation
- Run as is but assign scenes for MC, IC, RS, and OS to only 1 class
