Investigate, Probe and Excavate

Writing Challenge

This is Day 4 of my 30 Day Challenge.

Today’s writing task is to write a ‘mini-saga’.   This is a 50-word story.

The form, sometimes known as a ‘brian’, was patented by Brian Aldiss, who found crafting 50-words an antidote to constructing novels.

One of the joys of this form of story is that they will often fit into the 280 character length of a Tweet!

Day 4 – A Mini-Saga


This one’s memories go back a long time but unfortunately, with age, they have lost much of their clarity.

I’m still hopeful though that I can harvest the more important information before her inevitable death.

As I continue to investigate, probe and excavate this diminishing mind, her screams get weaker.
