I read about Story this morning. It’s by Robert McKee, the author of Chinatown, long considered one of the best screenplays and movies of all time. So, I looked it up on Amazon.
What was also mentioned was Dramatica, also a book about writing stories, but one with a different approach to them. I researched them both.
My research showed me something very important: Story is expensive. The book is likely out of print, but the Kindle version is even more expensive, over 25 bucks US. On the other hand Dramatica was $7.99.
That made the one to choose an easy choice.
