The Dramatica Software Companion has two principal sections:

The Software section makes Dramatica simple by showing you exactly what each feature does and describing how to use it for your story. From the StoryGuide to the Story Engine and everything in between, Melanie explains every step in easy to understand language to get you from concept to a completed treatment or rewrite for your story. You can follow through the entire series of demonstrations in order or jump directly to any feature for a quick explanation.

The Creativity section provides two completely different approaches to Dramatica, neither of which is described in the Dramatica software itself! For Structuralist writers, Melanie explains how to work out your story's structure BEFORE you write, then turn your story points into believable people, places, and events. For Inspirationist writers, Melanie takes you through the process of following the muse by creating dramatic moments or perhaps even writing a first draft, then finding and refining the structure in the story you discovered along the way. If you've ever felt Dramatica was too technical or took you away from the joy of writing, this section is for you!

No matter what your writing style, the Dramatica Software Companion will put the creative power of Dramatica at your command. Don't lose another valuable hour of creative time trying to figure out what to do or how to do it. Don't become frustrated and put your expensive story development software on the shelf.

Understand every feature in Dramatica and how to use it creatively!

About Dramatica and StoryWeaver

What They Do

Dramatica is a tool to help you build a perfect story structure.  StoryWeaver is a tool to help you build your story's world.

Dramatica focuses on the underlying logic of your story, making sure there are no holes or inconsistencies. 

StoryWeaver focuses on the creative process, boosting your inspiration and guiding it to add depth, detail and passion  to your story.

How They Do It

Dramatica has the world's only patented interactive Story Engine™ which cross-references your answers to questions about your dramatic intent, then finds any weaknesses in your structure and even suggests the best ways to strengthen them.

StoryWeaver uses a revolutionary new creative format as you follow more than 200 Story Cards™ step by step through the story development process.  You'll design the people who'll inhabit your story's world, what happens to them, and what it all means.

How They Work Alone

By itself Dramatica appeals to structural writers who like to work out all the details of their stories logically before they write a word.

By itself, StoryWeaver appeals to intuitive writers who like to follow their Muse and develop their stories as they go.

How They Work Together

But, the finished work of a structural writer can often lack passion, which is where StoryWeaver can help.  And the finished work of an intuitive writer can often lack direction, which is where Dramatica can help.

So, while each kind of writer will find one program or the other the most initially appealing, both kinds of writers can benefit from both programs.

Try Either Program Risk Free!

We have a 90 Day Return Policy here at Storymind.  Try either or both of these products and if you aren't completely satisfied we'll cheerfully refund your purchase price.
