What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read. Here is my entry for the week.

Its wealth was an illusion. Now the cops and worse, the IRS want me. I’d get rid of it if I could. But when I spend it, the cashier’s eyes glaze over and they hand it back. Dropping it is pointless. It just reappears in my pocket. It mocks me.

Now see the rest!

  1. That darn penny. Doesn’t sound like fun at all. Wonder if he’ll ever be able to get away from it.
