September "Pillar of Fire" Award

Are YOU a "Pillar of Fire"?

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 September Pillar of Fire Award (in honor of Ray Bradbury's collection of plays, of course).

So if you've met your W1S1 writing goals during the month of September, just add your name and blog URL to the "magical" widget below.

And if you've had something W1S1-related published this month that you're particularly proud of, add its title and URL to the widget as well, and we'll be sure to check it out!


BLOGFEST RULES: Visit all of the participants above and give them each a virtual slap on the back for their success this month. Then visit their published works, and leave a comment if possible. Well done, everybody!

  1. I've been trying to get to the end of some longer fiction that I'd hoped to complete by the end of the year - so there hasn't been too much short fiction output this month from me. Still, managing to stay on the wagon ...

  2. So far, so good, although I seem to be losing steam as the year goes on/comes to a close. Just gotta keep chugging away...

    Hmm, I'm particularly proud of my story, "What's Left," now up in the Sept issue of APOLLO'S LYRE. (I couldn't figure out how to add the link in the Linky thing but no worries - it's up on my blog if anyone wants to check it out.) :)

  3. Somehow, I managed to write/sub 3 short stories this month, and I'll have the 4th finished, polished, and subbed ASAP.

    Onward and upward, y'alls!

  4. Finished up 2 shorts this month that I'm very proud of. Submitted a story from last month. Had one published from many months ago.

    All in all, I'd say success is mine. :)

  5. Looks like I managed to write 9 stories this month (1 short story, 7 flash, 1 micro).

    I subbed 19 stories, mostly flash, but several short stories.

    I had 10 accepts.

    I had 3 publications (5 micros published in one)

    Guess that makes me a Pillar of Fire. Cool graphic, Milo.

  6. Wow! Everyone is doing great! Yeh!

    (And I managed to get my story in the Linky thing. Who hoo!)

  7. And I'm glad you did, Madeline. Enjoyed your story.

    I messed up my first attempt at the linky, unfortunately :-)

  8. Congratulations, everyone!

    Madeline, that's a lovely story. Very sad.

    I managed to get my W1S1 out this month. And I got my story in the linky thing. I might have got it in twice because the first time it didn't seem to work.
    I was hoping to do a lot more this month, but things just didn't work out like that. But I got the one done, so that's OK.

    Also, talking of things happening twice. I seem to have been marked down twice for that in the Hall of fame. I think it happened once when I said I'd sold a story and again when it got published. So, anyway, I've only sold one.

  9. Great story at Brain Harvest, Lydia.

  10. I did the bare minimum this month because my focus was on my new novel, but I'm sticking with it. Thus far, I've stayed with W1S1 every month.

  11. Lydia: Oops; my bad. Hall of Fame updated.

    Beth: That'll be me next year -- I plan to drop from Weekly to Monthly so I can do the same.

  12. Working on a longer piece this month that will spill into next month, but I did manage to write a flash story which has already been submitted. A couple other stories from previous months have been shortlisted. I'm waiting impatiently with all my fingers and toes crossed. I learned earlier this month that "The Fletcher's Daughter," one of my stories from April, has been accepted at Residential Aliens.

  13. Congrats, Jeff -- Halls of Fame updated.

    And I'm right there with you on the crossed fingers and toes!

  14. I started one piece that became much longer but finished 12 micros and subbed one. So I made my monthly goal two months in a row (that's a best for me!).

  15. I did it. For some reason this month was a battle. I had an idea, not an idea for a story, just an idea, so I wrote that up more as a way to get all the concepts down. Then a few days before leaving on vacation I got the story part of the idea. As my wife said, "Characters are nice." See my blog for more.

  16. C.McKane: Well done!

    Dave: My stories usually start with the characters, and a plot eventually emerges -- if I'm lucky.

  17. I beat the end of the month this time.

    Write 1: "The Long Hall"

    Sub 1: "The Depths of Inner Space"

    Oh yeah!

  18. I'm back in, but my novel is sucking up all my writing time.

  19. Back in the saddle? Bueno!

  20. Hey, cool new widget for posting your blog link! I was on fire this month. Or at least it felt like it to me :) Exceeded my sub goal, wrote something that's pretty darn near submission ready already, and revised a bunch of other stuff. I'm hitting October feeling pretty darb good!

  21. Yahoo! That's a great feeling -- bottle it up.

  22. Yay! Was able to keep up with this challenge for the Month of September :)
