Have you ever looked at the toaster and wondered what it is thinking about? Does it have problems or a hot temper? Maybe that pen in your hand is full of its own ideas it wants to get down on paper, if it wasn’t for you forcing it to write what you want it to? Your computer, that’s got to be plotting against you, hasn’t it? Does turning the light on, turn the light on?
This month we want you to get inside the ‘mind’ of an inanimate object and bring it to life. You have 800 words to make the TV and the lampstand the Romeo and Juliet of electrical goods, for example. Good luck and let your mind wander into new, exciting territories. Why not, that’s what your stapler is doing right now.

The prize for this month's challenge is a hardback WEbook of your choice from the WEbook Store

Happy writing and good luck!


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 12th Jan 2016 until 10 pm EST on February 1st, 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.
