    I started this project about 26 years ago.

    Initially it was a novel, then it became a screenplay. Now it's an Intellectual Property, a super story, an organic transmedia.

    Attached Files:

    Luis, i dont know what to make of that. It looks like an impressive amount of note taking but if you are claiming it as intellectual property why post it here?

    i fear, without the benefit of the creators thoughts, i am not sure what it means to you.

    your posting could use more clarity.

    Also, You dont need to post your content into tags.

    The "note taking" is actually my work -- I am the sole creator | author of the IP.

    In the whole note taking I tried to manage to fit all the IP potential, so I would send it to a transmedia producer as one-pager synopsis or pitch. Note: The Attached File is a rough draft from 2021, August 15, 21h05. At the moment (as of now), I'm still working on a new updated version.

    On the note taking (of my rough draft) there's a centered horizontal line with arrows at each end -- it's the historical timeline of my Storyworld. It forms a story arc with the three-act structure. That's the Macro-Story!

    The storyline is divided into eight vertical Core Narrative Micro-Stories, (e.g.) NORMAL WORLD/"gGod's Boredom". At its top I name the Mediums to each core narrative, for example, Core Narrative #1 - Normal World: Performance (Puppet Show). At its bottom I wrote a Character Group for that story, e.g., gGod (Agora), Finger Butterfly Puppet, Hand Dog Puppet.

    Lastly, the big ORANGE ARROW, is pointing to "The Black Emotion of gGod" which is my work-in-progress, a "Backdoor Pilot" (screenplay).

    I use also the 12 archetypes, e.g., INNOCENT, from the book, AWAKENING THE HEROES WITHIN by Carol S. Pearson (1991). ...For the whole note taking on the rough draft I've been using two other books: YOU'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER STORY (2017) and YOU'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER WORKBOOK (2021) both by Houston Howard.

    Some of the archetypes, for instance, RULER (green color) may be an (a) Additive Comprehension, or (b) East Coast Extension, or (c) Dynamic Connection.

    And that's it!
