99 Ways to Tell a Story is an awesome book for writers or other creative folks. In this book, Matt Madden tells an extremely simple story in 99 different ways.

These are all told visually, as if a page in a graphic novel. Some variants are mostly visual variations or silly changes to fill the "99 ways". But others are more significant - changes in point of view, in perspective, in genre. Some are homages to other comics.

I plan to bring this book to my writing group to spark an exercise, where we tell the story in words (prose or poetry). I think it will be interesting to see what people come up with.

What a good idea :). both for the book and for the exercise. I'll have to look for this one.
