Write1Sub1 Month #2 Check In

The end of Write1Sub1 2011 month #2 is upon us! If you're taking part in the "Light Ray" monthly scheme, here's your chance to share with the world how it's gone.

Have you managed to write the story you intended? Have the words flowed or has it been a week from hell? Here's your chance to let everyone know. If you've managed to write a story and submit a story, shout it from the rooftops now. Go you! If you've had something accepted or even published, tell us so we can add you and the market to the Write1Sub1 Hall Of Fame. But if stuff has got in the way of the writing and all your replies have been rejections, let us know that too so we can commiserate! We've all been there.

Successes and failures, triumphs and disasters, brilliant ideas and insane dreams : we want to hear all about them!

  1. Well, during this month I got the rejection of my first month's story, but it was a kind rejection, and they're open to seeing more of my work.

    I managed to write and submit another story, and am hoping to hear back about it soon.

  2. I finished the story from January but have yet to submit it. I wrote a new story, submitted, and received a rejection, then revised it and submitted to a different publisher. The story for March is underway and I've worked out the plot for another story. Maybe I can finish two stories in March. I also received rewrite requests on two other stories that I submitted late last year. Those stories have been revised and resubmitted. A market I've been waiting for opened so I submitted a story that I finished in September. I have four stories out right now which is more than I've ever had out before. Thanks, W1S1.

  3. WooHoo. I just had two stories picked up by Flashshot. I really do have Write1Sub1 to thank because I don't think I would have gotten off my butt otherwise. Don't tell any future bosses of mine but I work better under pressure.

  4. I broke my arm on the 15th, and subsequently failed month 2. Typing became incredibly hard. Between the pain and the pain meds, I didn't want to do much of anything.

    That's my excuse. It's a good one, but it' still pretty lame. I could've done better. :(

  5. I managed to submit a story for this month, though I haven't received a reply from the January one yet. Hopefully, it will come in the following days (and hopefully those will be good news).

  6. @Stephanie: a broken arm is a pretty good reason not to be able to type! I'm sure you'll do okay this month :)

    I've managed to get slightly ahead of the game this month. Subbed 2, wrote 3. Which is gravy.

    Write hard, all!

  7. Subbed1 in the early part of the month. Wrote1 over the course of the month. Yep, still on target. Bring on March! I have one all ready to sub. And I can't wait to start brainstorming a new write1. :D

  8. I subbed three stories, finished a story I started in January, and wrote one completely new story. So this month was another success.

    2 down / 10 to go

  9. I wrote and subbed two new stories for January, wrote and subbed one new one for February and also revised and subbed an older one for Feb. I'm on track but I've lost a little oomph. Hopefully, I'll kick it up a notch for March. :)

  10. I'm doing the Light Ray option.

    My submission for January didn't make the cut for a contest. I only wrote one story in February, and sent that out today to a market that promptly rejects 99.9% of submissions. But that's okay. I'll just send it out again.

    Overall, though, February was an excellent month for writing. In the past two weeks I've put in over 30,000 words on my Nanowrimo manuscript and should have it wrapped up in the next few days.

  11. Writing disaster... everyone was sick, work imploded... I need a week on the beach with my laptop. I did write one story about 80% through on paper, and am working on revising one story, just haven't banged out the edits on the computer yet. /sigh

  12. I wrote six stories this month, all of them under 1k words. Nothing submitted. I claim cowardice, for not wanting to dig out stories from my archive to polish, and all the ones I wrote this month were more conceptual than actual story.

    I am starting a weekly flash fiction series on my blog, but that counts only for writing and not subbing. The first episode of the series will appear this Saturday.

  13. Wow, some serious dramas this month. I hope things line out for Stephanie and Dawn. And it's always nice to see the words "Excellent month", Beth C.

    Hear that drumbeat? It's marching us into March.

    Subbed 1 in February!

    Was a little bad about writing this month. Working on my February story, still. Another story from January is half-finished.

    Congrats to everyone else!

  15. I barely scrapped together a short short story to submit in Feburary, but I got a ton of work done on my novel which I think is a fair trade off. :)
