Week #33 Weigh-In

The end of Week 33 is here!

How's it been for you? Have the words flowed like Dandelion Wine, or has Something Wicked gotten in the way?

Here's your chance to tell everybody about it, whether you're a weekly or monthly(or anything in between) W1S1 participant.

If you've managed to write a story and submit a story, shout it from the rooftops. Yahoo! If you've had something accepted from this year, tell us so we can add you to the Write1Sub1 Hall of Fame. But if stuff has interfered with your writing and every reply has been a rejection, let us know that too so we can commiserate. We're all in this together.

Also, remember to note your paid publications ($) for our Published Work$ page -- stories published from either W1S1 2011 or 2012, and don't forget to post the link! While W1S1 continues to encourage all avenues for publication, we want to especially highlight those stories and markets that help to put coffee in a writer's favorite mug.

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

  1. Written: 2k in this month's story; I'm targeting Asimov's.

    Subbed: haiku to StarLine

    Accepted: "Captain Quasar vs. the Flashback" (written last month) to 101 Fiction

    Received a rewrite request from Arcane II and resubbed a version of "Beneath the Surface" that's even better than the original.

    And to top it off, Locus reviewed the latest issue of Shimmer which includes my story "Soulless in His Sight."

    Write on, everybody!

  2. Life is full of death and rejection.

    It's really not a good week around here. No good news on the writing front, and my beloved cat is quickly succumbing to cancer.

    I did edit last week's new story and have it posted for critique, and have worked on two new Chicken Soup stories. I'm on target for having four--hopefully five--new stories out this month.

    New submissions: story to Chicken Soup and my W1S1 poem

    Published: I'll have two pro publications this week, so that is something to look forward to.

    1. *hugs* for you and your cat.

      And yay for the two pro pubs this week!

    2. I'm so sorry to hear about the kitty. That you can keep going through tragedy sets an example for the rest of us. I hope it gets better for you soon.

  4. Ah yes, well you see ... I was doing OK, even got a few stories ahead but then wedding plans took over. I did finish and sub a new story this week though and I have several at first draft stage so I'm hoping I'll average out a new story written each week this year. Subbing is OK - already over 52.

    I have another one for the hall of Fame. Black and White was accepted by Take a Break's fiction feast (great news particularly as they pay quite well)

  9. Oops, forgot to come visit on Sunday - crazy busy days at our house.
    I did write one, and subbed one - rejection from Pedestal came in, subbed it to UFO, and got a 2 hour rejection. Sigh.
    No accepts, no pubs.

    Congrats all on all the accomplishments! Beth, so sorry about your pet, that's hard. Patsy - wedding, yay!

  10. Way to hang in there, Lee. Getting through the troughs is the toughest part of this gig. Two hour rejection is pretty impressive. I'll trade my 265 day rejection for that :-) Get it back out there.

  11. I've got a story coming up in 'Growing up in the 70's' due to be published next week. It's called High School Blues, and it's one I've been paid for.
