Seventeen years ago I started blogging about story structure and a particular theory of story I found really fascinating: Dramatica. I still remember my first post in 2006. It was an analysis of Spielberg’s “War of the Worlds” that I felt compelled to post after being invited to see it in his personal screening room at Amblin.

I thought the movie was awful, and hoped that if I could just explain the theory to one person I could somehow change the future of storytelling.

Fast forward to 2023 and now I work daily on an AI-integrated app that helps thousands of storytellers across the world with better stories.

And now I want to stay writing about building profitable AI applications.

Here we go.
