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!

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