'Monty finds a manuscript that promises to grant him every wish he makes if he translates it. When he does and makes his first wish, that's when trouble starts.'

"The stinging caress of wood smoke wound its way through the rainforest's mossy trees. Pulling me from sleep, its heavy tang drew me towards a jagged pathway littered with sharp debris. This pathway appeared to have been violently forced in to existence by those with no understanding of the rainforest's subtle guides. Pressing my foot down on to the path, treading in their wake, I knew I should follow."
This month, we would like you to focus on using a full spectrum of sensory descriptions within your sub. We don't want you to rely on telling us what you, and therefore we, should be looking at. Rather, we want you to make us feel what's going on. Ignite our senses. Tell us what to smell, what to touch, and what to listen out for.
If you think you're a master of literary description and you've got this challenge down, then don't be afraid to show us - and the rest of WEbook - what you've got.
To read the full challenge description and find out how to enter, head over to the challenge page.
You've got until the end of the month to enter, but to take full advantage of feedback from other members you should make sure to get your entries in nice and early.
Up for grabs is a USD$25 Amazon gift voucher, or a hardback WEbook from the WEbook Store...
Congratulations to all the entrants in the August Challenge: Talk to Me
Dialogue is a tricky thing to master, with some of the main hurdles being tied up in a writer's ability to capture the natural ebb and flow of conversation. Often we write in a very different way to the way we speak, so trying to combine the two can be fraught with unexpected hurdles leaving you in a battle against your instincts.
However, despite the difficulty presented by the challenge brief there were lots of top-class entries in the battle for the winning spot this month.
WE are a reading, writing and thinking community. We work together to help each other become better writers through supportive and critical community conversation.
WE bring together tens of thousands of writers, published authors, avid readers and almost 100 established literary agents, to create an energetic hub of activity where talented writing is celebrated and undiscovered gems can be rooted out and polished into literary diamonds.
WEareWEbook and we believe that a collaborative community input is the key to creating the perfect book. So come and become part of the WE and show us why you should be the next big thing!
