Nothing to do with scriptwriting...
As part of my daily routine of procrastination I usually check out The Astronomy Picture of the Day.
A new picture each day. Stunning stuff. Awe-inspiring, in the true sense of the word. And huge - images of entire galaxies, or starscapes showing whole clusters of galaxies. Wonderful. And really helps put any minor problems I might have into perspective. All in all, I treat it as my own personal Total Perspective Vortex.
Anyway, today's image is not on quite the same scale. It's relatively close to home. This picture shows barchan sand dunes on the surface of Mars. I just think it's beautiful.
