Week #46 Check-in

The end of Week #46 is upon us. How's it been for you? Has it been The Cat's Pajamas? Or are lost in the Catacombs? 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 and submit a story, leave us a comment! Woot! If you've had something published from this year's submissions, 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 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 W1S1 2011 or 2012, and don't forget to post the link with title so we can add it to $ Published Works! While W1S1 continues to encourage all avenues for publication, we want to especially highlight those stories and markets that help to put juice in a writer's laptop.

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

  3. Finished the second draft of Madame Antic's Hotel Grotesque and am halfway through the third. Next up: the dreaded synopsis. And finding a publisher. Won't be querying agents on this one -- plan to send it straight to Tor books. We shall see...

    Warm rejection from Nature this week; otherwise, it's been as silent as the grave.

    Write on, everybody!

  4. I had such a great week! I kept up with the NaNoPAD challenge, tried a few poetry styles that are new to me. I wrote two flash stories and cleaned up a flash from earlier in the year. I sent off one poem and one flash. Oh, and I'm reading Against the Fall of Night by Arthur C. Clarke--SOOO good.

    And drum roll please:
    TWO acceptances. :) One Thanksgiving Flash to an eZine that I can't remember the name of and one poem ($) to Every Day Poets. AND, EDP asked me to clean up a few commas in a second poem and send it back to them. :) Giddy type of week.

    Have a great week, writers!

  5. Checking in a bit late. Got my write 1 in for the week, but it would prefer to something much longer than it is, so I ponder a possible novella/novel for it.

    A couple of rejections, but also a w1 acceptance ($) for my flash piece A Measure of Sorrow, which will be in issue 16 of Luna Station Quarterly.

    1. Awesome news, Charity! I love the title, makes me actually feel "a measure of sorrow."

      And a possible novel/novella? That's great--I know you can do it. :)

  7. Last week was a non-week on the writing front, for various reasons. Basically nothing to report. Nothing at all. Still, it's inspiring to see others doing great work. I shall rise again!

  9. W: Story for the A is for Apocalypse anthology. Continued to write a poem a day.

    S: Nothing new.

    Working like crazy to catch up on smaller projects and work ahead before I start on a new novel in December. Plus, holiday prep.
