This work addresses the problem of generating narrative fiction by using a plan-based language to model schematic knowledge of storyworld mechanics (fabula) and communicative plans (discourse). The paper outlines an approach to extract fabula and discourse from screenplays as a way to overcoming an authorial bottleneck problem.
