The Storyform: A Blueprint for Storytelling

There are 75 Storypoints found in a complete Storyform (found at the top of your narrative tabs in Subtxt) and over 32,000 possible unique Storyforms within the current model. 🤯

The Storyform is a holistic blueprint of your story's thematic intent. It contains the message, or argument, of your story and communicates it by virtue of the relationships between Storypoints and the evolution of Storybeats from beginning to end.

A Storyform in Subtxt

Once you build a Storyform, you CANNOT change it. Everything within a Storyform is related to everything else: if you were to change one Storypoint, you would have to adjust them all. If you find yourself halfway through developing a particular narrative and come to the conclusion that you need a different Storyform, you have to build a brand new one and start over. This ensures thematic integrity amongst all the narratives you create in Subtxt.

The Storyform page in Sutxt is divided into three major sections: the Premise, the Storyform, and the Dramatic Argument.

The Premise is the foundation of the story and provides a quick summary of the overall narrative. The Storyform is the heart of the story and outlines the structure and key elements of the narrative.

The Dramatic Argument takes the two Pivotal Elements, which are the intersection of Character and Plot, and separates them into the Main Character and the Obstacle Character. These two characters drive the conflict and tension in the story and their interactions shape the narrative.

By clearly outlining the Premise, Storyform, and Dramatic Argument on the Storyform page, Subtxt helps writers understand and analyze the structure and key elements of their narratives.
