May Blogfest

Are YOU a May Marionette winner?

At the end of each month we publish a list of everyone who has managed to stick to the challenge: whether weekly, monthly, or whatever variant is working for you.

This month, everyone who has done so receives the May Marionette Blogfest Award, named after Ray Bradbury's short story Marionettes, Inc. from The Illustrated Man collection. If you've met your W1S1 writing goals during the month of May, just 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, and we'll be sure to check it out!

  1. Managed to get my May W1S1 out early this month. With all the novel-ing and novella-ing lately, flash is about all I can manage.

    Immaterial Evidence is out this week from Musa, and it combines two of my W1S1 stories from 2011 (weeks 49 & 50).

    Write on, everybody!

  2. Yep, I managed to keep up this month - wrote and subbed three and had one pro sale, so I'm happy.

  3. I originally planned to take it easy this month (a statement that probably will make anyone who knows me laugh hysterically) and instead it was enormously productive, albeit stressful at times.

  5. W1S1 complete for May. :) This is the month that the writing and submitting finally clicked, that they weren't so doggone hard. :)

  6. Well, it's been an eventful month...

    Haven't tallied up all the rejections, but I know there's a lot. So I did lots of resubmitting, and wrote and subbed two new stories. Once acceptance, but that's for a reprint.

  10. I met my goals for May and then some. Got more stories out this month. Strangely, no rejections or acceptances, which means June will hit me like a bomb.

    Had two great stories published:

    The Dead River, at Roar and Thunder ($)
    Their Souls, Like Stones on Ice, at Liquid Imagination ($)

    Good Luck with June everyone!

  11. Made it through May. Hopefully June will be a little easier, though it seems doubtful.
