The Writing Files: Dramatica Story 5

I finally got it! The newest version of Dramatica, the writing program! I am so excited and am currently using it to work on a few projects. Today I post on this highly recommended program that will help you write your story.

I first found out about Dramatica a few years back. It was a lot of fun to use it at the time, although there were several inconveniences. First off, there was a library full of images that you could pick from. The only problem was no one person looks exactly the same and so you might not find the look you’re going for because the selection is limited. Also, Dramatica used to force you to revise or fill in blanks or else it wouldn’t print your structure outline. This was very frustrating.

The new version is updated and gives silhouettes of people, so you can get the outline of your character right and not mess up on the face. I recommend you import your own pictures. Here is an example of imported pictures which I used as place-holders for my mystery novel, Samuel Woodlock:

Alan Ladd

Alan Ladd/ Samuel Woodlock


Fay Wray

Fay Wray/ Miss Bloom

Brian Donlevy

Brian Donlevy/ Richard Dixon

I loved using this new version for several reasons: 1. You can easily see a brief overview of everything you have. 2. You have basic story info to fill out that will instantly pop up in other places, so you don’t have to rewrite it. I enjoyed using the new Dramatica Pro immensely.

As you can tell, I am thoroughly pleased with this program and highly recommend it to writers who want guidelines without your story being written for you. Chime in and tell me what writing methods you use!
