In a moment of absolute writer's block I looked up dramatic life events to give me some kind of inspiration and I stumbled across this --

"The Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations is a descriptive list which was created by Georges Polti to categorize every dramatic situation that might occur in a story or performance."

I imagine there are be more than 36 and I'm probably just late to this information, but I thought it was a great list and it definitely managed to get the creative juices flowing.

Sounds like a pretty good script title as well, I call dibs

I haven't looked at this as I already have plenty of creative juice. However, it might come in handy in the future. Thanks for sharing and wanting to help out. Very decent of you.

Thanks for pointing out this neat resource.


Quoted from Warren

Yes, I don’t see “Hyperdrive fails” or “Monster mistaken for dead” on the list

Was going to merge threads but decided just to add these complimentary links as this theme/the 36, the 5, etc., comes up every now and again:
