Well, I finished the rough draft of my second major paper to write this month. Now I’ve just got the two papers to edit, the GRE and MAT to study for, classes to teach, church to help with, etc, etc, etc. At least I’m making some progress though… a little… right? Anyway, enough of my complaints. I have a story challenge, and it’s time for my favorite story challenge. I’m going to give you a series of criteria including genre, theme, some character archetypes, etc. Your job is to write a story that includes all of the features required in the challenge. If you intend to post it here, please keep it short. However, the complexity of this challenge often requires a longer story.

Theme: Work

Genre: Historical, Fantasy, Modern

Setting: Your setting can be whatever you want, but it has to have something to do with work. You could write about a turn of the century factory, an ancient grain mill, a fantastical mine the churns out magical ore, or a modern office. You could even write about working from home.

Character Archetypes:

1) The Self important Co-Worker

2) The Knowitall

3) The Boss

4) The Hard Worker


1) A product (whatever it might be)

2) A commonly used tool (this could be anything from a pick-axe to a stapler)

3) A code of conduct
