Week 34 Check-In

2013 week #34 is behind us.

How's it been for you? Did you write and submit like a Powerhouse, or did it feel like an Off-Season? 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 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. If stuff has gotten in the way of your writing or you're starting to feel like a rejection magnet, let us know too, 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.

  6. Busy week. Trying to make progress on writing goals for the month as I prepare for Worldcon next weekend.

    W: I've started another round of revisions on my novel; I added about 4k this week. I also wrote two new Chicken Soup stories.

    S: The two Chicken Soup stories. I've exceeded my monthly goal by sending out three stories overall, and I don't see myself sending out anything else new this month.

    Published: I had three poems published on Strong Verse over the past week. All three are W1S1, though written over the past few years. ($$$)

  7. Took a break from "Live by the Ten, Die by the Gun" to give my novella Yakuza Territory another round of edits. Hoping to sub it as my September W1S1.

    Getting close to the 4-6 weeks mark; an agent has my partial manuscript and said they'd get back to me within that window.

    Started adding "active SFWA member" to my cover letters; haven't noticed any difference yet. =]

    Write on, everybody!

      Fingers crossed for good news on the manuscript.

  8. Had a haiku accepted and published by Trapeze, and a story through to the final round at Drabblecast. Still very much in summer holiday mode, so not really getting that much done...

  9. Back after a long drought with 2 new submissions last week! Sent "The Guessing Game" to Youth Imagination and "The Lonely Loon" to Spider. One was written this summer the other... a few years ago. So it's never to late. You're all inspiring me to sub-sub-sub!

  11. Well... it was a week. I subbed some stuff but I didn't write anything. At least nothing fictional, school work ate up most of my productive time. I did get a short story, Feeders, published in Bete Noire Magazine ($$) though, so that's a yay :)
