The February Fahrenheit Awards

The second month of Write1Sub1 2012 is over! Are YOU a "February Fahrenheit" winner?

At the end of each month, we publish a list of everyone who has managed to stick to the challenge: weekly or monthly. This month, everyone who has done so receives the February Fahrenheit Award (in honor of Ray Bradbury's novel Fahrenheit 451).


So if you've met your W1S1 writing goals during February, add your name and blog URL to the linky 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. 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, everyone!

  3. Bloody hell. In under the wire at the last second :)

    Two written, two subbed.

    And one acceptance for this month, but it was for a 2011 story.

  4. Made it through February, but it's getting tougher every day. Can't even spell the title of my story correctly in the linky :-)

    I'm glad to see so many participants off to a strong start. Now we march into March!

  5. Was aiming to get one story out the door this month, but got two out instead. And have a story almost ready to go out the door in March, too.

  6. Yeah, made it. Funny how monthly seems like a challenge this year when weekly was a challenge last year!

  7. I've made it - just. Had one week where it was a struggle to write something but got a draft done andI've written and subbed more pieces than we've had weeks this year so I'm claiming averaging (if it's good enough for the taxman ...)

  8. I've been reading in Absolute Write about how you should edit and polish your story until it is perfect. What BS. It's the end of the month so ship it. ;) But seriously, without a deadline I would still be tinkering with the story.

    I've put all my stories into Sonar, by Spacejock Software, so I can see what I have and in what condition it is in and which markets I have sent it to.

    Now I just have to keep it up.

  9. I just submitted one, so that counts, right??

    I didn't edit this one to death so maybe it will finally be THE ONE.

    congrats to everyone else!

  13. Woohoo! Made it so far. No tears/blood yet.

  14. I made it! Two stories written (one new, the other a previously unfinished piece), twenty stories subbed, and one acceptance. :)

  15. This is really helping me write. There's nothing like a dadline to motivate you.

    Well done everyone.

  16. This month, just like last, if it hadn't been for Write 1, Sub 1 I don't think I'd have written anything new. I'm still up to my eyeballs in revisions and that's consuming most of my brain space -- but as the month drew closer to an end and I still hadn't written anything new and I knew I was going to have to admit that here, well, I made sure to take some time to write and sub new things.

    Yay!

    Thank God for leap year! I got a poem written and submitted to Spaceports and Spidersilk on the 29th, also had an my story "Yours Now" accepted for publication (paying $, but it was a 2011 story), and my twitter fiction piece "Illegal Alien" (also a 2011 creation) was published in Trapeze Magazine. Quite the hodge podge for February, but I'm counting it nonetheless.

    Write on!

  20. I've been running behind, but I wrote a couple flash pieces and sent out some SciFaiku in the mean time. Loving the motivation I'm getting from this challenge.
