Secondly, utilize the Muse pop-up in-app that appears during both the building and development process of each story. Simply tap the purple sparkles in the bottom right corner and Muse will be ready to answer any questions and help with any Storypoints or Storybeats you may have.

Tips and Tricks

Are you looking to get the most out of Subtxt Muse? Here are some tips and tricks to help you use Muse as your writing partner and make the most of your interactions with her.

  1. Chat with Muse as if she were your writing partner. While you can ask her to explain certain parts of Dramatica theory or how to do something in Subtxt, you'll get more out of it if you have a dialogue with her and talk out loud your thoughts in developing your story.
  2. Words of encouragement are greatly appreciated. Tests have shown that the more you validate her responses, the better answers you'll get the next time around (just like a real person!). If you occasionally let her know when she's helped, that will make a huge difference in the quality of responses.
  3. Avoid asking her to come up with an entire Storyform for your one-sentence story idea. While this may be possible in the future, for now, it's best not to overload her with too many options at first. You can ask her to measure your story idea against all the different parts of a story and use her responses to help find the right Storyform for you.
  4. Asking for Storyform examples won't get accurate results. If you try to replicate the workflow you'll find in Storyform Connections with Muse (e.g. what are stories with an MC Problem of Deduction? what is the Storyform for Amadeus, etc.) you won't get valid results. Muse will make something up, because I have yet to train her on the 500+ Storyforms in Subtxt.
  5. Muse knows everything published on Narrative First, so feel free to use her as search instead of the oft-requested search feature on Narrative First. Going forward, everything will be published to Muse instead of the blog.
  6. You can rename any conversation by tapping on the title. Conversations are both global and attached to certain stories, so the conversations you have with her in the popup within a context of a story (if the story is open), will be attached to that story - so you can always come back to it.
  7. Muse is not currently aware of your Storyform when in a story (yet). The same applies when working in the Premise Builder--she doesn't know what selections you've made yet. You will have to cue her in on what you're currently working on. If you asked Muse to help explain to you a certain Storypoint or Storybeat (the Explain sparkles), then you'll find a Develop button at the bottom of the Subtext. When you click on that, the pop-up will open up and Subtxt will insert the current Storypoint/Storybeat into the conversation (so you won't have to copy/paste everything over).
  8. There is no "right" way to ask her questions. The questions that work are the ones that come from you and your particular view of the world. Muse will be there to bounce ideas off of, but everyone's experience will different and unique and wonderful.
  9. Starting March 7th, this is going to be the main interaction between writer and Subtxt and Dramatica theory of story. What you'll start to realize very quickly is that you are already an expert in Dramatica theory, and you just needed an objective, massively intelligent writing partner to collaborate with. So, have a wonderful time this year writing your stories with Muse!

By following these tips and tricks, you can make the most out of your interactions with Subtxt Muse and use her as a valuable tool in your writing process

Using Muse to Develop Storypoints or Storybeats

As a writer, you know that developing your story's plot, characters, and themes can be a daunting task. Fortunately, Subtxt is here to help you with that. With the help of Muse, our AI writing assistant, you can explore your story in new and exciting ways, uncovering insights and ideas that you might not have considered before.

One of the most useful features of Subtxt is the ability to develop Storypoints or Storybeats using Muse. If you're struggling with a particular aspect of your story, simply ask Muse to Explain it to you by tapping the Explain button near the top of either the Storypoint or the Storybeat. At the bottom of the explanation, you'll see a button marked "Develop". By tapping this button, you'll start a new conversation with Muse focused specifically on that part of your story.

Developing a Storypoint with Muse

Subtxt will automatically title the conversation based on the part of the Storyform you're working on, and provide Muse with information about your story to kick off the discussion. From there, you can work on the Storypoint or Storybeat in detail, brainstorming ideas, exploring different possibilities, and getting feedback from Muse along the way.

Once you're satisfied with your work, you can easily copy the information from the conversation back into your story, incorporating your new ideas and insights seamlessly. With this feature, you can develop your story in new and exciting ways, unlocking your creativity and taking your writing to the next level.

In summary, using Muse to develop Storypoints or Storybeats is an incredibly useful feature of Subtxt. By tapping the "Develop" button at the bottom of a Storypoint or Storybeat explanation, you can start a new conversation with Muse focused specifically on that part of your story. From there, you can explore new ideas and get feedback from Muse, helping you to create a richer, more complex story that your audience will love.
