I’m asking you all for feedback.
Listening to the Dramatica Users Group podcasts, I have heard Chris say a number of times that one should focus on the MC’s personal moments in order to figure out the points of that throughline. For the OS, he emphasizes it’s what “everyone” is concerned about.
Distinguishing the MC’s concerns, I suspect, is pretty easy for me. What I want to know is whether scenes as only part of the MC throughline are frequent. I suppose it depends on the genre.
My guess is that usually the MC through line beats are, more often than not, placed within the OS and RS. For example, say there’s a remake of Little Red Riding Hood called “Freeway”. Little Red is clearly experiencing moments of impact on her, personally. However, I can only imagine the personal moments in MC throughline are short.
Same with Star Wars. There may be some moments of MC when an OS character discusses an MC concern with Luke, but usually, it’s personal moments woven into either RS or OS scenes.
