A Quick Note on Dramatica's help...
I was able to pinpoint the function of scenes in a greater story context and identify why the story felt the way it did. I also feel that I could suggest and make improvements on the story if I were asked to.
NOT something I feel I could've spoken intelligently to before. Sure, I could give my opinions, but if asked how to change it, I would've just had to guess. Dramatica gives me structure, which gives me a greater understanding.
