Story Challenge of the Week

Really, who do you think pays to keep that castle pretty? You do!

Well, we’ve just passed tax day, so I hope all of you got your tax forms in on time.  I know for some people this is your least favorite part of the year, and for other (at least those who get giant refunds), its probably a time to which you look forward. Regardless, its time for another story challenge (and I bet you can guess the theme).  Here are the rules if you need them:  You must write a story of at least a hundred words, and not more than five hundred (if you want to post it as a comment – if it’s just for yourself, then it can be as long as you want).  The story must be about the theme given in this post.  So,  if the theme I give you is Life, don’t write a story about the lord of the underworld.  If the theme is War, don’t write a story about a farmer planting his crops.  Themes are very broad, so it really shouldn’t be hard to stay within a given theme, but I teach, so I know that some people have trouble with this.

Your theme: Taxes

This could be a story about doing your taxes, a story about a fantasy tax collector, or even a story about stealing taxes.  Make it interesting, and make it inspiring!
