The April Witch Blogfest

Are YOU an April Witch?

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 receives the April Witch Award (in honor of Ray Bradbury's short story of that name).

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 Witch 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! There are lots of great blogs out there, well-worth following ...

  1. I'm a monthly Write1Sub1-er. For April, I wrote one short story which is currently under revision. I wrote 3 twitfic pieces and submitted, one of which received acceptance from trapeze magazine for publication this September.

    A highly successful month for me.

  2. Me! Plus, I have my first 2 W1S1 acceptances! One is a called "The Hoarder's Wife" - Boston Literary will publish it in their summer issue - (http://BostonLiteraryMagazine.com)

    "Evie" will be in Every Day Fiction (http://www.EveryDayFiction.com.) some time in the next couple of months.

    I also have a previous/non-W1S1 story called "Absolution" up at One Forty Fiction.

    (I posted both of these successes in the previous blog post but wasn't sure if it was the right place for it since it was for Light Ray so I thought I'd do it here instead.)

    :)

  3. Stephanie + Madeline: A GREAT month for you both. Yahoo!

    As for me, yes I am an April Warlock: four new short stories submitted in four weeks, plus some microfiction and haiku. April's been my best month so far, as I had "El Diablo de Paseo Grande" accepted by Arcane Magazine and "Grandpa's Bluetooth" by Liquid Imagination.

    Looking forward to what next month will bring!

  5. Congratulations Sandra, Milo, Madeline and Stephanie.

    Milo, I think witches can be men, too. Or was that a dream.

    Anyhoo, witch-me-up.

  6. I did it too. Wrote a flash and sub'ed it to Daily Science Fiction. Sub'ed some other stories too. That was my whole objective in joining W1S1, to get myself subbing again.

  7. This is my first W1S1, and I'm going monthly because I'm a lazy hack. ;) I finished and subbed my first story for the challenge yesterday, so I guess that means I'm ahead of schedule!

  8. Probably not going to be caught up by the end of the month, but I got another acceptance by SNM Horror Magazine! And they even said mine was a top three contender for their contest! Yay!

  9. Loving the vibe this month. I struggled valiantly, but did squeak through to sip the witchy brew. I managed a couple of flash acceptances, one from a market I've aspired to for a while, so yay.

    Here's hoping May will be a bit easier (fat chance, right?) and I'll finally get to those longer stories I've been putting off.

  10. 18K written on a novel and I sold the novella I wrote in February to Decadent Publishing yesterday :D

  11. We are doing the A to Z Challenge. I just realized that Witch could have been a good "W" word especially Roald Dahl's Witches.

  12. Witch status here too, managed four submissions for April, one short story, three flash (well under 1000) but no acceptances...:(

  13. Hangs head. Nope not me, sorry! Though I am getting better now my medication has kicked in. :O)

  14. I wrote two flash, and revised a short story that had been in submissions but needed cleanup and got it back out. I have 5 *resubmissions* for the month, but no new ones. I think I'm going to count this a success.

  15. Add me to the list.
    This month I wrote a 3K short story and have received an acceptance from the editor.
    Thanks for the encouragement and April Witch award--and I guess for letting me admit to being witchy.

  16. Yes! I managed to stick to the scheme this month - not always easy with the Easter holidays etc.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yay, I'm a witch! I wrote and submitted two stories this month.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I made my goal - 1 written and 1 subbed.

  19. One short story written longhand (~1k) and one Twitter fic subbed. April is DONE! :D I'm really ready for May.

  20. I managed to keep up in April although a lot of what I wrote was just flash. Although I did have one almost 6000 word piece in there. I also got an acceptance from nanoism for a piece I sent back in January. (Actually the second piece of twitter fiction I ever sent. As long as I get a piece submitted tonight (which I plan to) I will have gotten one for every week in April.

  21. I'm late checking in, but I did meet my goals for April.

    I backed down to the minimum one-a-week submission from my subfest in March, and wrote 2 micros, 2 short stories, a flash and most of a novella. I also had 6 acceptances (2 for W1S1 that I'll list in the weekly check-in) and 5 things published.

    It was a pretty good month. :D

  22. Checked in on the other one, but yes I did make my April goals! I'm a monthly and and actually doubled my minimum (wrote2subbed2).
    Actually, I subbed way more than 2--12 stories submitted this month in fact. :)

  23. I think my post disappeared into blog-land somewhere. But I did send in a submission for April. I got in under the wire!
