Welcome to the September Challenge!

In this month's challenge, we're interested in the exploration of our senses and how you can use these in your writing. We very regularly utilise our eyes, and therefore what we see, as the basis for our literary descriptions, so this month we want you to use as little visual-based description as you can. The more a submission can convey the scene or story to their reader by using their character's other senses like touch, sound and smell, the better. Using what you see to describe things is not banned, but the less you use it the better.

Here's a sentence that we'd like you to use somewhere in your entry:

"The [sound] instantly made both of them uncomfortable..."

You can replace 'sound' with anything you like, as long as it has a relationship to a sense. i.e. 'smell', 'feel', etc.

If you absolutely have to add some additional connection words in there, that's also ok. i.e. 'The feel of it instantly...'

You've got 1,000 words again 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).

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. 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 September 2016 until 10 pm EST on 30th September 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!
