My internet portal is BING. Each day BING showcases an image, static or moving, of some place or some thing about our planet. Pretty cool home page, one of the reasons I went to Salzberg. This day the image is a train station in Paris and since Paris train stations are pretty cool I navigated the "information" panes on the image, one of which linked to this book; Exercises In Style by Raymond Queneau. The book is 99 versions of the same scene and I found it interesting. While (I believe) there are limited ways to write a script scene, this book is interesting to read.

Here is the link to the online version, free.

Interesting and great point re scenes... And for some scenes 99 might not be far off if you include tinkering as you write and then the inevitable re-writes and any changes further down the line...
