My writing partner and I are working on a comic series and we want to try an experiment with dramatica. Our idea was to use the stroyform as the outline and road map for our series. We'd then tell it in serialized episodes. We thought it would be a good way of learning dramatica, and also improving our storytelling. Our goal with the series is to tell a single big story over the course of the comic. Yet, still have each episode have a sense of completeness to it.
Our approach so far has been to create a loose outline for the series. Working through the main events we think we want to happen. We decided to structure each storypoint based on a single signpost. For instance, episode 1 - Main Character Signpost 1, Episode 2 - Impact Character Signpost 1 etc. We then figured out that we could use the plot sequence report as a guide for the episode act structure (not dramatica acts, more like TV act breaks).
Currently, our first episode looks like this:
Main Character Domain: Manipulation - Concern: Playing a Role
Signpost 1: Developing a Plan
Progression: Attitude>Approach>Self Interest>Morality
We wanted to see if we were on the right track with how we're breaking down the story. If anyone has any thoughts of where we might fall into trouble. Or any useful parts of the theory that could help we'd really appreciate it.
