Welcome to the July Challenge!

This month we're challenging you to write a story based on a one line prompt.

This is a challenge of creativity, a challenge of interpretation and ingenuity. Will you take us somewhere unexpected and unforeseen? Will you show us things we hadn't expected? Will you pull forms and shadows from the darkness? Will you spin us a reality so glitteringly real that its fictionality must surely be the fiction?

Think you're up for the challenge?

Well then, here's what you need to begin with...

"Number #6706428 woke with a start..."

... where you take it next, is up to you.

You have 1,000 words this month. Use them wisely.

The prize for this month's winner is either a hardback WEbook from the WEbook store ( OR a US$25 Amazon Gift Voucher (or the closest equivalent in your preferred currency).

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. But this month, we’ll be looking at the user ratings extra carefully!

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 2016 until 10 pm EST on July 31st, 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!
