Story Plotter v1.0
Jan 28th, 2012, 2:41pm
 
Hello,

I would like to contribute a small tool I use to warm-up before I start writing.

Story plotter generates a simple and basic story line which you can use to write any kind of stories (long, short, drama .. whatever). As I am using the plotter in german I have just pre-filled the sections with a few entries. To get more topics, secrets, self-images .. for your own stories a good place to stop by is PostSecret.com.

Download Version 1.0: http://textnotes.wordpress.com/2012/01/28/story-plotter/

Look forward to your feedback.
Gernot

Neat ideas here. I've some some possible additions to p.ThemenContainer prototype. Though not necessary to the overall purpose, the changes just aid visualising the source data.

So, in 'p.ThemenContainer', set:

  $ShowTitle -> true        (show the title in the note)
  $TextSidebar -> false   (hide the sidebar)
  $RuleDisabled -> true    (don't execute the $Rule code in this note)
  $Rule code:   $Text = collect(children,$Name).format("\n")

The rule above runs, except in the prototype note, and sets the container's $Text to a 1-item-per-line list of the containers child note's names.

This means you can, if helpful to your work style, open any of the containers' text windows so you can see their contents without expanding the whole outline. The containers don't use their $Text for anything else so I see no downside to the above.

@Mark, thanks for your feedback. New Version 1.01 is available on the website. The  $Rule code is really useful.

@Christian, deutsche Version stelle ich gerne zur Verfügung, der einzige Unterschied ist aber lediglich die Inhalte in den Containern (deutsche Titel,  Geheimnisse usw) und das ich in der deutschen Version noch die Titel der Container teilweise in deutsch habe. Melde mich sobald die Version online ist.    

Rgds, Gernot
