Are You a January Juggernaut Winner?

At the end of each month we're going to publish a list of everyone who has managed to stick to the Write1Sub1 scheme (weekly, monthly or whatever variant is working for you) for that month. This month, everyone who has receives the January Juggernaut award for their efforts (the name inevitably taken from a Ray Bradbury short story).

So, let us know! If you've stuck it out, tell us in the comments and we'll add you to the end of month posting! Include a blog or web site address too if you like and we'll make your entry a link for others to explore.

  1. Super-smug - I switched to the lite version in a fit of fright, but have managed a weekly W1S1 so far ... January's River of Stones certainly helped to prime dailiness on my blog: http://sandra-linesofcommunication.blogspot.com/

  2. I'm in the writing doldrums today because I received another rejection yesterday.
    However, despite a week off sick when I had a bad back and didn't write or submit anything I have still managed to write and submit 4 pieces of work, so I guess I qualify. :O)

  3. Great stuff guys and well done for sticking at it. Sorry to hear about the doldrums Madeleine. It will make your next acceptance all the sweeter.

    The post listing you all will go up on the 31st.

    And, um, although it feels like I'm telling myself something, I qualify too! Blog : Spellmaking.

  4. Well, I'm not sure if i'll qualify yet (i plan to, but plans are only plans). Still got a story to finish and sub to get my 2 written and 2 subbed for the month. Will there be a check-in post at the end of the month?

  5. Samuel,

    There will : a month-end one for the Light Rayers and a final weekly one for the Bradburyists.

  6. I planned to do 1/month. I ended up writing 3 shorts, two of which will be sent out to anthologies. Should those fall through, I'll shoot for print/online mags.

    All in all, an overly successful month for me. :)

  8. I stuck to it - my variation of the monthly - Light Ray x2. I wrote 2 stories and submitted them both. www.dmbonanno.com

    I think your list is going to be a long one. It sounds like everyone's been doing great.

  9. I made it for Light Ray (plus!) - wrote 2, subbed 2.

  10. Does submitting my novel to ABNA count? If so, then yes. :)

    I may make it two submissions before the weekend. I have a short almost ready as well.

  11. I'm making it! Four stories completed so far this month and as many subs. I'm actually surprised by how easy it actually was to churn a short story out every week (although I fear the near future, as grad school starts TODAY for me).

  12. I'm on track for the Light Ray. I've written 1 (+2) and subbed 1 for January.

  13. I'm on track for the monthly, but I'm hoping that in the next few months I can do more than that. Here's to hoping we all have good news!

  14. I have also written 1 (needs final editing, planned for this weekend so it will be ready to sub in Feb.) and subbed one this month so on target for Light Ray. I've started on my Feb. story so actually am a little ahead.

  15. Me me! I've written 4, subbed 14 (most of those were older stories.) I did sub 3 out of 4 of my W1S1 stories though. The fourth is a mess I still need to sort out.

    Congrats to all the January Juggernaut Winners!

  16. I took a couple weeks off from blogging during the holidays and really focused on working on two WIPs. I've been going strong through January. I need to get together with my editor soon as the pages are filling out nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  17. That would be a yes! I signed up for the Light Ray version and wrote 1 new short story last week and subbed it 2 days later. But I didn't stop there--I also subbed an older story, and wrote another new short story today with plans to sub it by Sunday.

  18. I stuck to it and, although week two was tough going, I've written five stories and three Haiku and submitted all but one of them. I also had one of my submissions published!

    Thank you W1S1, I couldn't have done it without you motivating me!

  19. I've wrote 1 and subbed 1 for each week, plus submitted an edited story for the 100 Stories for Queensland. Also found out I've had a short story has been shortlisted (top 3). So a good month in all.

  20. This is the kind of feedback we like to read. Well done, everyone!

  21. Just completed my fifth story and I have five submissions for the month so I'm on track for the weekly with an extra story in there for good measure.

  22. Second story for the month subbed tonight. I figure that means i qualify for the January Juggernaut (i still have to finish a draft for my second write story of the month, but i've got a backup or two if that doesn't pan out (this story keeps leading me into corners that aren't easily backtracked out of (this is the third level of the dreamworld; it's pretty much the same as the other two, except with different words)))

  23. Week 1: Wrote "The Glow" (4700 words)
    Week 2: Wrote "Winged Warrior" (7500 words)
    Subbed "The Glow"
    Week 3: Wrote "Midnight Mass" (3600 words)
    Subbed "Winged Warrior"
    Week 4: Wrote "A Perfect Pear" (polishing today)
    Subbed "Midnight Mass"

    It has been difficult, but I'm on track.

    Congratulations to all the Juggernauts so far. Keep those reports coming.

  24. I wrote a micro poem and also a micro fiction and submitted them both in to Trapeze Magazine. They were accepted and will be published in the spring.
    I submitted a thriller in to Thrillers,Killers, and Chillers, it was rejected on the basis of editing but I was welcome to re submit it once the improvements were made.
    I also joined Poetry Circle and my first poem was rejected ( it was more of a lament and a rant very good but, not poetic). I submitted another poem last night called Dog. It hasn't been rejected yet so there may be hope yet.

  25. Wrote or polished and submitted 4 stories in the first four weeks of W1S1. Week 1 story, "The Candidate" was accepted at Gary Games and will be serialized on their web site starting in early February. Week 2 story, "The Last Incantation" was subbed at Daily Science Fiction and is awaiting response. Week 3 story "Pel's Crusade" was rejected by ASIM and I'm looking for an appropriate place to send it. Week 4 story, "Hunger" was submitted today to short-story.me

    Survived the first four weeks. On to week 5!

  26. Count me in for four stories in four weeks.

    1. "The Good Daughter" (sent/awaiting response...)
    2. "The Fisherman's Son" (sent/awaiting response...)
    3. "Delbert Kibbey's Mail Order Bride" (sent/rejected/revised/sent to market 2...)
    4. "What to Pack When Bound for..." (sent/awaiting response...)

    Whew.

  27. Yay, I made it with four new stories subbed. Juggernaut me.

    By the way, are we counting re-writes? I don't suppose we are? Are we?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Deborah,

    I don't see why not. If you feel it should count then it should count. Maybe it depends on how substantial a rewrite it is?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yay, made it! Wrote two flash fiction pieces and nine micro/twitter fictions. Subbed two flash fictions and six micro/twitter fictions.

    Hoped to work on more longer stories, but I've also been taking a poetry class and writing a poem or two a week, and trying to wrap up last November's nano novel, so it's been a busy month!

  30. I'm doing the Light Ray (which sounds like a kind of dance). I've written and submitted two brand new stories this month. Otherwise, I've been revising older stories and sending out older stories and poetry.

    My blog is over this way:

  31. Just managed to submit a story for the Light Ray. That was indeed close.

  32. I missed this one - I managed the January Weekly Wri1Sub1. :D

    I have eased into it gently, with three short short fictions and one longer collaborative effort.
