Dramatica Writing Software: Choosing an Objective Story Domain

Objective Story Domain: The scenario or dramatic background against which a story takes place.

Every story is set against the issues which arise from a single central problem. The problem itself will fall into one of four broad categories. If you want the problem to grow out of a situation, then choose Universe; if you want the problem to emanate from an activity, then choose Physics. If you want the problem to evolve from fixed attitudes and states of mind, then choose Mind; and if you want the problem to result from the characters’ manipulations and ways of thinking, then choose Psychology.
