Product Details

Every story can be improved by the skills of a Master Storyteller.  Now you can develop those skills in yourself with Master Storyteller software.  Over 100 interactive Story Cards present nearly a thousand tips, tricks, and insights through Exercises, Essays, and Story Development Templates.

Master Storyteller explores both the Art of Storytelling and the Craft of Story Structuring.  Journey through the Story Cards in order, or jump right to the topics that interest you, or in which you need help in your writing.  Each card will open a whole new world of creativity and understanding.  You’ll discover hundreds of new insights into story development.

Along the way, create your own Story Cards to take notes, work out ideas, or organize your story materials.  When you are ready to build a story of your own, begin with the Story Development Templates to lay a solid dramatic foundation.

You can even create automatic references to other Story Cards so that work you do elsewhere will be pulled together in a special Reference Window to help in developing a new aspect of your story!

It’s one thing to develop a story.  It is another to develop your own writing skills.  Even the best joke falls flat if told by a poor comedian.  And even the best story idea dies on the vine if it is poorly told.  Make sure your story is structured and written with inspiration, energy, and craftsmanship, as you become a Master Storyteller.

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.
