Welcome to WEbook's May Newsletter!
This month we're highlighting some useful and free (!!) resources for writers on the internet, including some great places to find inspiration, ideas to help you stay focussed and some interesting thesauruses that will help to diversify your vocabulary and writing.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our May Challenge, First Line Imitations, our judges are locked away in their dungeon making their final decisions about the winners as you read this... Our June Challenge is now up and running, and this month we're challenging you to start your tale in the middle of the action. No faffing about with building up tension. We don't care about developing your character's broody features. WE WANT ACTION!
So, do not delay, enter The June Challenge: LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION! right away. Thanks for reading and as ever, happy writing!
