Month #8 Check-In + August Rains Blogfest

2013 month #8 is in the bag!

How's it been for you? Did you meet your monthly goal or have a hard time? Here's your chance to tell everybody about it.

If you've managed to write a story or poem and submit it, comment today and let everyone cheer! If something you've written as part of W1S1, whether this year or in previous years, has been accepted, let us know so your name can be added to the Write1Sub1 Hall of Champions. And if stuff has gotten in the way of your writing or you're starting to feel like a rejection magnet, let us know, so we can commiserate. We're all in this together.

And don't forget to let us know when your W1S1 creations are published so they can be mentioned in the weekly Satummary. Be sure to note if they're paid publications ($) so they can be added to the Published Work$ page. Publications qualify for this page as long as they were written during any year's W1S1 participation, whether they pay pro rates or help you pay for morning coffee.

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

August Rains Blogfest



Are YOU an August Rains 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 August Rains Blogfest Award, named for Ray Bradbury's story August 2026: There Will Come Soft Rains. If you've met your W1S1 writing goals during the month of August, 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!

  3. A rather rejection-heavy, but that was to be expected. Wrote one magical realism-turned-weird story about tea, at 1,400 words. Made one sale to Indian SF($).

    My flash, "Great Find," was published over at Perihelion($).

    Happy writing, everyone!

    1. Congrats on the sale and publication! I've added one to your HoF. If you hadn't reported the acceptance of the flash before now, let me know and I'll add another. :)

    2. I can't find your story at Perihelion. Have they decided to publish next issue or somesuch? (Your blog says it was the fourth story down, but I don't see it when I scroll down). Post a link when it's available and I'll add it to the $ page.
