Software Narratology helps Fiction Writers

Any DA+TA source (dump artifact + trace artifact) can be used to generate and validate narrative fiction where memory dump components provide fiction structure and software trace components provide behaviour (plot and story):

I already use such help in writing fiction books http://www.opentask.com/fiction-titles (”computational” novels) and use trace analysis patterns in validating historical narratives http://www.opentask.com/history-titles (with Excel and software trace viewers as tools). Here fiction is in no way different from software fictions outlined in the article about software stories. Please also note 2 other fields along with software narratology (SN was defined in mid 2009 where the first pattern appeared earlier in 2009) that are under development: software chorology and chorographyAdjoint threads and trace analysis patterns are the major contributions from SN.

Final note: Because we consider memory dumps in a general sense (e.g. philosophy of memoidealism where any data is a memory dump) and software trace narremes as small memory dumps (mid 2009) any data stream potentially can be represented as some fictional or real story. And vice versa, any story can be transformed into corresponding computer memory dumps and software traces (for example, the narralog language is being designed to model software stories).
