In order to write my own short interactive scripts, I'm currently studying screenwriting. I've come across an excellent book - simply called "Story" by Robert McKee (1999) which deals with the principles of story design. - aimed at "screen and television writers, novelists, playwrights, journalists, anyone with a story to tell".

This struck a chord:

"... the novice plunges ahead, counting soley on experience, thinking that the life he's lived and the films he's seem give him something to say and the way to say it. Experience, however, is overrated. For most writers, the knowledge they gain from reading or study outweighs experience. Self-knowledge is the key - life plus deep reflections on our reactions to life."
