Week #45 Check-in

The end of Week 45 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. Hey guys. Hope you're all having a good week.

    Two sales for me:

    My poem "Reflections En Route to Orion Nebula" sold to Strange Horizons

    Another one of my scifaikus was picked up, this time by SciFaikuest for the print edition coming next May.

    Two acceptances in a week is new for me. It's pretty nice to feel validated once in a while.

    1. Way to go -- both are great venues.

  2. Two petty sales for me too. To mirror dance and bfs journal. and £ sale story published at dsf today.

  3. Yikes, not petty, Poetry. Curse ye, word recognition.

    1. I look forward to reading the DSF tale when it's on the site.

  4. Good job on the poetry sales, Debs and Erik!

    Slow writing week for me. Spent most of my time dealing with post Hurricane Sandy fallout and then traveled to PhilCon for the weekend.

    However, I did end up with another pro sale on Friday. Buzzy Magazine picked up "The Tinker Bell Problem" (which is a W1S1 story from earlier this year) and will publish it sometime in 2013.

  5. Whoo hooo. Pro sale. Nice work, Alex.

  6. Plenty o' rejections this week, but I managed to finish the first draft of "The Cost of Freedom" for Big Pulp's Kennedy Curse anthology.

    Published: a Captain Quasar misadventure in 100 words, "Reformat"

    Also had the first story I ever submitted for publication (way back in July of 2009) accepted for an anthology -- more on that when the contracts are out.

    Write on, everybody!

  7. Hi

    I seem to be missing every other week. Ah well, still plugging away though

    No rejections or acceptances these past 14 days

    Wrote and submitted: The Mugshot of Dorian Gray (Fiction 365)

  8. Hey there. Great news Erik and Deb and Alex and Milo. I'll try to balance that out ;-)

    W1: "The Fairy Ring" (flash); "Sauce" (flash)
    S1: Flash to Pure Slush; flash to Nib Magazine

    Accept: The drought continues

    Published: Nothing this week

  9. Congrats Deborah (I'll be reading your story tonight when time permits), Alex, and Milo, and best of luck David and Steve on your subs.

    W1: "Of the Earth"
    S1: Hoodwinked to 101Fiction
    Accepted: "For Extraordinary Reasons," at eFantasy Magazine
    Rejected: "Simon Shoeberry's Pet Sanitarium," - its 10th rejection (poor thing)
    Published: none

    Keep up the good work everyone, and best of luck this week.

  10. I was visiting in-laws and traveling all weekend, so I'm slow to jump in here.

    I have a W1S1 sale (pending edits) to the brand new Waylines Magazine.

    As of this morning, I also sold a W1S1 poem to Liquid Imagination.

    These act as something of a salve for the 11 rejections I've received in the past 2-3 days. Ouch.
