Since this is our inaugural go at this. I'm going to give a reference to
And Jim's article on same short
You may use the quads in any order. You may use any of the Story points. It would be wonderful if in addition to your short story you could give a little run down on what Dramatica decisions you made before writing.
Word count....this is a little harder to call...for one I know we'll all want to read each others stories and if they're too long that won't happen...for two, I'd like us to be able to give each other feedback. I think the point of this is for us all to get more facility with Dramatica, not just showoff our writing chops. So...this first time out were. going to try 1500 words. One week to get it in and one week to give feed back. So no more than a short story 2x a month (I might bend this a little so we get on a 1st and 15th type schedule (Note to self: play this by ear). And it could be, depending on how it goes. 1 a month. We'll see.
@jhull is there any chance we can have our own category for this? Maybe? Pretty please?
Language, this is an open forum, therefore let's keep it pg-13 please.
I want to give as much leeway as possible, but I also really like the idea of doing some focused things — like scenes, rather than full stories that use a specific story point (forewarning, ua, cf, etc.) I'm volunteering to be facilitator, but I don't want to feel like this is solely my balliwick. So if we want to changes facilitator each time, I'm down with that.
I think we should give a week for discussion of anything else y'all think is relevant. Should I post the first quad next Thursday, April 19th, or would you rather start on Sunday the 15th?
No prizes, just good fun, and a more active writing community.
