Recently, I came across this 1976 Dissertation.






In it, it discusses the creation of a show, specifilly, an episode.  In the appendix there are 2 OLTL breakdowns, one hand  written, and the script to the typed breakdown. 


It analyzes the overall creative process and compares long term projections to the breakdowns to the final script.  The illustrating points are fascinating.
