StoryWeaver guides you step by step through the story development process from concept to completion of a finished treatment. You’ll go through four stages from Inspiration into Development, Exposition and Storytelling.
Dramatica helps you build and/or analyze the structure of your story’s underlying dramatics. It is world’s only software with a patented interactive Story Engine that will find holes and inconsistencies in your structure and even make suggestions on how to fill and fix them!
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
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.
