A generative story is one that is generated by a process, and in our case our interest lies in how to write a script for such a "story machine".  A generative narrative is a machine that tells a story using a narrative engine, but the story as such can be a predefined one. 

 

However the boundaries are far from clear, since it's impossible to completely isolate these. It becomes even more tricky when we consider the fact that with montage we create narratives with meanings for the story far exceeding the individual elements.


My question: Is the notion of "generative" applicable when the grounds for a generative narrative are accidental?


The Narrative Paradigm is a theory proposed by Walter Fisher that all meaningful communication is a form of storytelling or giving a report of events (see narrative) and so human beings experience and comprehend life as a series of ongoing narratives, each with their own conflicts, characters, beginnings, middles, and ends.


Fisher reacts against this model as too limited and suggests a new paradigm of "narrative rationality". He begins with the proposition that:
