Product Details

Every story has a mind of its own - its own personality, its own psychology.  Its personality is developed through passionate storytelling.  Its psychology is the underlying dramatic structure.

In this new series of audio programs from Melanie Anne Phillips, co-creator of the Story Mind theory, you'll learn how to psychoanalyze your story's mind to build just the personality you want it to have.

Each program is sold separately.  You don't sign-up or receive unwanted mail.  Just check back from time to time to see which new programs have been released.

In this first program you'll learn how to:

  • Beat Writers Block
  • Create Something from Nothing
  • Analyze Nonsense to Discover Meaning
  • See Your Story as a Person
  • Build a Structure without Sacrificing the Muse
  • Find the Beginnings of a Plot
  • Let Characters Suggest Themselves
  • Leverage the Difference between Subject Matter & Structure
  • Let Your Subconscious Mind Find Your Structure for You
  • Build Characters, Plot, Theme, and Genre to Represent Aspects of Our Minds

And much, MUCH more!

Stuck for an idea?
This program will have them pouring out in minutes!

Need Characters? 
You'll learn how to create as many as you like!

Sitting in front of a blank page?
Never again!

You've never heard anything said about story structure like you'll hear in this program.

The Story Mind approach to writing uses your own passions to create your story's structure.  It focuses your efforts, clarifies the direction of your story, and triggers your imagination.

Unlike any fixed "formula" for story creation, the Story Mind offers unlimited flexibility, yet provides step by step guidance that will take you from concept to completed story.

Future programs will be released regularly and include titles such as, What Happens in Act Two?, How to Paint from a Genre Palette, How to Create Great Characters, How to Build a Thematic Argument, Tricks of Exposition, and many more.

Don't miss this first release in a series that is sure to re-write the way stories are told.

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.
