As you'll know, the plan with Write1Sub1 is to "do a Bradbury" and write/submit a freshly minted story each week. That's absolutely still the case, but we've also heard from a few people who love the idea of Write1Sub1 but don't want to take on the full weekly challenge.
With this in mind we've decided to set up two levels of Write1Sub1 : the original weekly scheme and a new monthly one. Hopefully Write1Sub1 Monthly will appeal to folks who want to join in the fun and be a part of the community without having to commit to the challenge of a story every seven days.
The two new graphics are here and also in the blog sidebar. Pick the right one for you and wear it with pride! We'll write a monthly "check-in" post for the monthly folks in addition to the weekly (Sunday) ones for the weeklies.
Meanwhile, here at Write1Sub1 we've started referring to the weekly scheme as "The Bradbury" and the monthly one as the "Light Ray". It seems to me these would make fine award names. So, complete the weekly scheme and at the end of 2011 you'll be awarded a coveted Bradbury to display on your blog, show to all your friends etc. Complete the monthly one and you'll receive the Light Ray award. Both are sure to be highly prestigious.
