The March Martian BlogFest

Are YOU a March Martian?

At the end of each month here at Write1Sub1, we publish a list of everyone who has managed to stick to the challenge - either weekly, monthly or whatever variant is working for you.

This month, everyone who has done so will receive the March Martian  (in honor of Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles - yes, we're clever lads) Award for their efforts.

So, let us know! If you've stuck it out, tell us in the comments below, and we'll add you to our end-of-the-month celebratory post. Include the URL to your blog or website, and we'll make your entry a link for others to explore.

BLOGFEST RULES:  Just visit the Martian above you and below you on the winners list (posted later this week), or visit them all, and give them each a virtual slap on the back for their success this month!

  1. I succeeded. One written, one submitted, as per my monthy goal. I feel I could have done more though, and I'm going to aim for more lofty achievements in April.

  3. Stephanie + Jeff: Congrats!

    I too have somehow managed to stay on track this month with a brand-spankin' new short story submitted each week, in addition to some tweet-tales and haiku. Onward and upward!

  5. I managed to make it, though not as I had envisioned. My long pants turned into shorts, but at least I had something to wear each week. Congrats to all of you who have made it this far. The finish line is nigh! (it's a quarter mile track, though, and we have to reach it three more times). Persperistence!

  6. I actually over worked myself and did the full on one per week. I'm aiming to do one per month. Oh well, maybe next month.

  7. I'm a monthly member, so...
    I submitted a story for January, but missed one in February. I've so far submitted five stories in March for a new retail website (with more to follow this week), so maybe that makes up for it :)

  12. I'm not quite done with my write 2 sub 2, but i will be before the month's out. 2 stories written, 1 subbed, the other needs final edits before going out the door.

    Congrats, all March Martians!

  13. Barely managed to keep up a couple of the weeks this month. I was within the final hours before deadline a couple of times but I managed to get at least one out for each week.

    I love the March Martian photo.

  15. Well, since I started at the beginning of the month I've stayed on track every week. Even managed to catch up with the overall total of stories written and subbed for the year-to-date.

  22. I've met my goals and submitted and written at least one new story every month. Things will get trickier in the future, but I'm still in this for the year.

  29. Submitted more than one thing this month, so exceeded the monthly goal by submitting a 250 word story to Postcard Shorts and also submitting more Twitter Fiction to Seedpod which was accepted.

  30. I'm a little late checking in, but I'm a March Martian. :)

    I wrote 9 new in March, subbed many of those as part of 16 things I subbed that had never been subbed before. Add in resubs and reprints, and I've submitted 37 things this month, with one more possibly going out before midnight.

    So I made it. Congratulations to everyone!

  31. March was a great month for me - I wrote and submitted seven pieces of ficiton. Five were accepted and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the other two.

    Congratulations to everyone else who made it!
