OVERVIEW

Welcome to the July Challenge!

In this month's challenge, we'd like you to take us somewhere a little bit different with your subs.

So, start off by getting out a map.

On your map, pick a small town or a village.

Using this as your sub's location, you need to write us a story filled with atmosphere.

Transport us there. Fill our senses.

Oh, and it's July, 1943. Whether that's important or not, is up to you.

You've got 1,200 words to work with this month. Beat us senseless with them.

Thanks to grafiksad for their challenge pitch, which has become the topic for this month! If you have a great idea for a challenge, message hlk88 and maybe you'll be the architect of next month's challenge.

The prize for the winner of this month's challenge will be a $25 USD Amazon gift voucher (or the closest in your preferred currency - if available), or a hardback WEbook from the WEbook Store. http://shop.webook.com

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 1st July 2017 until 10 pm EST on 31st July 2017.

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!
