The small satisfaction of printed tables

Dramatica Forum Frequenter and Princess Bride Aficionado Mike Lucas recently posted his "Essential Tools for the Running Writer," one of which is a story form table printed on paper. That table was generated by my Table of Scenes Generator.

Now, this "Generator" does not really do anything on its own. It merely takes the results of the Storyform report und Plot Sequence Report of the official Dramatica software, and turns them into one HTML-table. And the design was taken mostly from someone else as well.

Still, I feel a certain satisfaction over seeing something I had a part in being not only used, but printed on paper and taken along.


  1. Hey Bob, I'm so glad you saw that... You definitely should feel satisfaction at having a part in that. For the stories I've worked on with Dramatica I've printed several copies in different sizes, taken them running, scrawled ideas in the margins or in tiny letters beside PSR items, etc. It's a fantastic format!

    1. It's great to see it being used in multiple sizes and as a note sheet!
