The Mini Saga is a a form of writing in which the storyteller is allowed to use only 50 words. No more. No less. It is an exercise for both the left and right sides of the brain. It is appealing to those who are left brained minded for they must deal with exactly 50 words. But these people are challenged to "create a story" in that space. For right brained people, the effect is essentially the same. Lots of story, but alas, only 50 words in which to tell it. That is your challenge my friends. Give it some thought. I shall provide you with an example below. Try one and post it here. Always title your Mini Saga as such so we know what is happening.

An example:
A man took his shoes to a cobbler. Next day he was arrested and sent to prison for robbery. Twenty years later he was released, found the cobbler’s ticket and, just in case, took it to the cobbler’s shop. Examining it closely, the old man said, “Come back next week”.

This was a damn hard challenge.

I know not what came over me. I suddenly felt /alive. Instinctively I asked, "Do you want to make love?/ Gently we did caressed until both of us were consumed/ I said, "It's been forever..." He replied tenderly, "I understand."/ The honesty was too much.

Thanks, Mari! No, I don't volunteer for Special O. This is part of my job as a Community Integration Developmental Assistant.
Went out for a walk
I met this cutie chick
Stopped, with her I talked
Found out we really clicked.

Talked and talked some more
Learned she is a bore
I walked and left before
She really hooked me, sure

She called, come back lad
I was gone ... too bad.
nice =-)
This exercise was a hard one.
Welcome to POW. lol
