Saturday, Saturday, it's all right*

Beginning next Saturday, we'll be trying out a new feature here at Write 1 Sub 1. The Saturday Summary, or Satummary, will list all the Write 1 Sub 1 publications reported in the current week/month update. So be sure to report your publications, including a link, when you check in here, and note whether is was a Write 1 Sub 1 story or not. To qualify as a Write 1 Sub 1 story, it must be written during your Write 1 Sub 1 term. For example, if you joined Write 1 Sub 1 in 2011 and publish a story you wrote subsequent to joining, it will count as a W1S1 publication, but if it's a story you wrote prior to joining, it won't count as a W1S1 publication (feel free to report the publication anyway, as we're always happy to hear about the successes of our fellow writers, but note that it is not a W1S1 publication). In other words, we want to promote stories written as part of your Write 1 Sub 1 journey.

To put things in perspective.

1. When a W1S1 story is accepted, report the acceptance in your weekly/monthly update. The mod will update your Hall of Champions tally.

2. When a W1S1 story is PUBLISHED, report it with a link to the publication/story, and we'll highlight it in the next Satummary. If it's a PAID publication, include $$ (or state that you're being paid) and we'll also include it in the Publication$ Page.

Also, should your story be favorably reviewed in the future, report that (link or quote from the review) in your update and we'll include the review in the next Satummary. In short, we want to promote the works of  W1S1 participants to the degree we can. You can do your part by linking to the Satummary posts in your blogs via Twitter, etc. If the feature proves popular, we'll keep running it.

  1. Got it. Even if I can't pronounce "Satummary."

    Where do we update our progress? It's Saturday night, and I've just submitted my first story of the year. Woo-hoo!

    1. There will be a check-in post tomorrow (Sunday). You'll report your progress in the comments there. Congratulations. Every W1S1 journey begins with a single sub.

  2. Ditto. I've signed up, but I have no idea what we're supposed to do about reporting things.

    1. We'll have our first check-in post tomorrow (Sunday). Folks will report progress in the comments. It's fun, and gives us a chance to encourage each other.
