"To be or not to be, that is the question"
Reginald sat down on the edge of the stage,
looking out at the empty theatre,
not one person present to witness his
magnificent delivery.
With a sigh of frustration he rises
and picking up his broom,
returns to his duties.

Note from the Author:
The above ("To be or not to be") is an example of a mini saga, the idea is to tell a story in exactly 50 words (not 49, not 51 but exactly 50). The story should as with any story have a beginning, a middle and an end. The aim is to put a picture in the mind of the reader and leave them feeling that they know much more of the story than you have told them.

 I have recently published a collection of my mini sagas 'Life is a Mini-Saga' which is available on Amazon Kindle along with my two other books "In My Father's Footsteps" and "A Handful of Songs & Poems".
