Week #13 Check-in


The end of Week 13 is here already!

How's it been for you? Have the words been hotter than Fahrenheit 451, or has The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms gotten in the way? 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 and submit a story, shout it from the rooftops. Yahoo! If you've had something W1S1-related accepted, 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 that too so we can commiserate. We're all in this together.

This year we have cool forms for reporting your acceptances and paid publications. Thanks to Jeff Chapman for the design work.

Please report ONLY accepted/published stories that you wrote as part of your participation in W1S1 (2011-2014).

(Please note that reports will not immediately appear, as they must be verified/processed by the weekly moderator) 

 While W1S1 continues to encourage all avenues for publication, we want to especially highlight those stories and markets that help to put protein-rich snacks in a writer's fridge. (Please note that reports will not immediately appear, as they must be verified/processed by the weekly moderator)

Even if you have no acceptance or publication news to report, please update us on your week's progress in the comments. Successes and failures, triumphs and disasters, brilliant ideas and insane dreams: we want to read all about them.

  1. A good week for me. Finished Episode Two of a screenplay at 8,500 words to meet this month's goals, and subbed a recently rejected story out to a new pro magazine with a prayer.

    Lots on my plate for April--I'm determined to increase my submissions, so I made a list of eight stories to revamp and get out there this month in addition to my regular W1S1 goal of creating one new story. I'm hoping a good amount of free time will pay dividends in edited stories from W1S1 weekly in 2012.

    Have a great week everyone!

    1. Keep on keepin' on, Devin. Hope to read more about the screenplay at some point. My students are participating in Script Frenzy (even though it's no longer part of the Young Writers NaNoWriMo program, we're keeping it alive) and using Adobe Story to type up their screenplays.

  2. Subbed "Captain Bartholomew Quasar and the Bandits on Consortium Moon Prime" to UFO3 -- just made it before tomorrow's deadline. Also revised another 10K of my post-apocalyptic fantasy novel. My goal is 10K a week, and I have 120K to go.

    Write on, everybody!

  3. Mostly novel work here this week/month, but I did write and sub a fantasy piece to Miscellanea, so I'm good to go. I feel the need to write more short stories; there's a bunch of them buzzing around in my head. But finding the time, as ever, is the problem...

    Write on all!

  4. I missed last week. We got a new dog and that changed my schedule of things to do and when. So I will try to make it up next week with two stories submitted. I did write and submit for this week though

    Rejections: two, one from linguistic erosion and one from everyday poets
    Acceptances: none
    Wrote and Subbed: The Perennial Neighbor (Dark Fuse)

    Keep it up everyone

  7. My big news is that the first chapter of my novel The Clockwork Dagger is currently featured on Tor.com! The book comes out September 16th.

    W: Started a new story, but had to set it aside to work on a new round of novel edits.

    S: whole bunch of new poetry sent out!

    P: Poem "Nisei" in the new issue of Mythic Delirium alongside folks like Jane Yolen and Rhonda Parrish, and my science fiction short story "Measures and Countermeasures," about the future of eating disorders, is on Daily Science Fiction.

    Write on!

    1. Woohoo! That's so awesome about The Clockwork Dagger! But I'm afraid if I go read that first chapter I'll be upset I can't keep going until September 16th. 8-) Oh well, I'll read it anyway.

  11. The writing and subbing part has been going well. The publication part, not so much.
