Welcome to the December Challenge!

This month we've got a nice festive-themed challenge for you! But for those of you who can't quite bring yourself to write something Christmassy, the guidelines of the challenge should be wide enough for you to effectively skirt around it. No points will be lost for those who decide not to follow the Christmas theme for this one.

For this month's challenge we'd like you to write a story based on a scenario. You can take it wherever you want, but you've all got to start from the same place.

Here's your scenario:

There's a knock at the door. You open it, and outside is a gift you're not expecting.

Please note that you do not have to include this sentence or any reformulation of it in your piece, unless of course you want to.

You've got 1,000 words again this month, use them wisely.

The prize for the winner is a $25USD Amazon voucher (or closest value in your preferred currency, if available), OR a hardback WEbook from the WEbook store.

Good luck and happy writing!


The (somewhat) Fine Print:

WEbook will shortlist 6 entries. From which, WEbook will pick one that is the most deserving of this month's prize.

We'll also highlight each story on the blog and see if anyone tries to buy it. If they do, we'll tell them it's a real deal and that they'll have to pay for it!

Note #1: WEbook may not take into account the user ratings when deciding who will win the challenge. We read each submission carefully, and decide the winners based on our own judgment.

Note #2: There is sometimes a word count discrepancy between MS Word and WEbook's word count editor, causing authors' entries to appear to go a few words over the limit. Don't worry about this! We are aware of the issue and a few extra words will not affect our consideration of your writing.

Note #3: Only one submission per person, please (you can, however, revise up until the deadline - in fact, you should!).

Note#4: These terms and conditions together with any specific rules set out in prize draw notices (as defined below) are the rules and apply to this WEbook Challenge.

Note#5: The Challenge is open to all registered users of WEbook, and runs from 2nd December 2016 until 10 pm EST on 31st December 2016, 2016.

Note#6: In the event of any dispute regarding the rules, conduct, results and all other matters relating to a competition, the decision of WEbook shall be final.

Note#7: By entering the Challenge, you hereby warrant that all information submitted by you is true, current, original and complete. WEbook reserves the right to verify the eligibility of all submissions.

The rules are simple, yet the results should be anything but.

Good luck and happy writing!
