50 Word Mini Saga

In his book; A Whole New Mind, David Pink suggests writing a Mini Saga as a creative exercise.  The challenge is to write the entire Mini Saga using precisely 50 words – no more, no less.

Here’s mine:



At 6 Suzanne performed ballet for her classmates for “Show n’ Tell”.


At 18, practicing alone, she leapt the highest grand jette’ in history, or ever again.

No one knew.

At 24, whirling dervishly in a Moroccan restaurant, she transformed into whisps of silvery incense.

“What was that!?!”

God knew.
