Madden starts with one story: A man, sitting at a computer, gets up for something from the fridge. Someone asks what time it is. The man answers, continues to fridge but forgets what he wanted. End scene.
From there, Madden tells the same story 99 other ways: Monologue (a passive recounting of the story), Subjective (viewing only what the man sees), Furry (if the man was a skunk), as a Public Service Announcement (“Oh, Julio, I think you just found it!”), and so on. Each is more fantastic than the next.
Even if you’re not a writer (or planning to be), this easy read is a key tool for challenging creativity.
