Form Diagram

Frankie G’s comment in Forms inspired the diagram below. Sources have arrows going out of them, and sinks have arrows coming into them. Some people may disagree with the arrow choices or whether a certain form needs a few extra circles and squares, to which I’d say, “Feel free to make your own diagram.”

    Oh Krish, my Krish! THIS . IS . WONDERFUL!
    Thanks so much for sharing your circles, squares, and arrows!
    As our group is evolving, I definitely am looking forward to what our form diagram will be. Perhaps we’ll add to the legend something like dotted lines or triangles. (smiley face)

    This is awesome! My only disagreement (sorry for not making my own diagram) is that I think Group Games play an integral part/should affect the scenic beats in the Harold in a greater capacity than the isolation the diagram suggests.

      Thanks! I agree that the diagram you propose would result in a tighter Harold (but am also not redoing the diagram :-)), which raises an interesting point. Should both the proposed and existing diagrams be labeled Harold, or is the one as drawn something else? To put it a different way, if a diagram is used to represent a form, is the Harold a form or a collection of forms?

        There was once a dream that was Harold. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish…
