The School Leader: A Mini-Saga

In A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future by Daniel Pink, Mr. Pink suggest writing a mini-saga as an exercise in story telling.  For those who are unfamiliar with mini-sagas, they are very short stories with a beginning, middle, and end.  They are, I believe, also exactly 50 words long.

I have never written a mini-saga, but decided to give it a shot.

The School Leader
The incompetence of his instruction was matched only by his inept classroom management. Student-centered and mission-driven, he was committed to improve. He got better and wanted to share his passion with others. He now has an office and business cards. Now the learning is mutual. His message is, “Follow me!”

If you are looking for a way to work on your story telling skills, I recommend this exercise.  It was a great way to help find efficient language as well as being plain old fun.

Thanks for reading!
