    The Writer's DreamKit™ StoryGuide™ handholds you from initial idea all the way through to completed narrative treatment, inspiring you and supporting you along the way.

    If you thrive on the angst-ridden masochism of neverending writer’s block, then read no further. However, if you seek sound solutions to story development dilemmas, then your search is over––the Writer’s DreamKit™ is the tool for you. As your creative writing partner, it takes you to a special place—a story development environment where together you’ll solve the plot and character problems that prevent many stories from becoming great enough to sell.

    You’ll cast and build your characters, plot out your story, layer in themes with universal meaning, and put it all together into scenes to form a solid step outline. And as your mentor, the Writer’s DreamKit™ will do something no other writing program can do—it predicts parts of your story based on creative decisions you make! You’ll be inspired to incorporate those ideas into your developing story and make it even tighter—with no plot holes or character inconsistencies!

    The DreamKit™ StoryGuide™

    This is where your new story starts! The Writer's DreamKit™ desktop has eight tiles which make up a "home base" from which to begin writing. These eight tiles give you access to all of the tools in the program.

    A step-by-step interactive StoryGuide™ leads you through the creation of your story. Everything you need to go from concept to completed story will be covered as you build the dramatic elements for your novel, screenplay, short story, etc.

    The Story Engine™

    The Story Engine™ contains every dramatic element necessary to create a complete story. Make a change here and instantly see the impact on your story's characters, plot, and theme. You can also watch the impact of each selection you make as it causes other answers to be filled in.

    Build Characters

    Assign motivations for all the characters in your story. You can also see a graphical representation of how your characters relate to one another. There are dozens of icons from which to choose.

    Character List

    The Character List window contains icons for all the characters in your story. From this window you can access a variety of tools for creating perfectly suited characters for your story.

    Scene Creation

    Here's where you weave together all the parts of the story you've developed. Determine how elements of character, plot, and theme will be revealed to your audience over time. Illustrate how they'll show up in the story by assigning them to the specific Scenes, Acts, or Chapters that combine to make up your story's outline, treatment, or plot synopsis.

    The Theory Guide Window

    The Theory Guide provides a quick way of learning the Dramatica® Theory of Story. The Guide enhances your knowledge of the theory with tips for implementing it as you use the Dramatica® Writer's DreamKit™.

    The End Result

    Gain deeper insight into your story with the Writer's Dreamkit's StoryGuide™ and detailed reports. Export your story treatment -- containing the scene-by-scene narrative plot synopsis (novelists) or treatment (scriptwriters) -- into your favorite word processor for further rewriting.

    Export for Screenwriter Users

    Users of Movie Magic® Screenwriter™ can import their Writer's Dream Kit™ story treatment directly into a formatted script. All character names and descriptions, scene headings, and scene descriptions are formatted automatically-you're up and running on your first draft!

    What I came to discover that night is that Writer's DreamKit did not write the story for me, what it did do was make me work at telling a story I had no idea how to tell. When I arrived at the Congratulations! You've answered enough questions to get down to one storyform! I was elated. I had finally arrived at a story close to what I wanted to tell and with some more refinement I would have a script. In one night I had the story I spent months avoiding telling and it had more depth and organization than I usually end up with on a words on paper outline.
