March Monster Blogfest

Are YOU a "March Monster" winner?

At the end of each month here at Write1Sub1, we congratulate 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 March Monster Blogfest Award (in honor of Ray Bradbury's first collection of short stories).

So if you've met your W1S1 writing goals during the month of March, just leave a comment below, and if you had something W1S1-related published last month that you're particularly proud of, post the link, and we'll check it out!

Blogfest Rules: Visit your fellow March Monsters' blogs and give them each a virtual pat on the back for a job well done. We're all in this together, folks.

  1. It's been a good month for getting sidetracked from short story writing, but I did manage to stick to the plan this month. Mind you it was close - snuck in at the last minute.

    Wrie on all!

    1. I have a feeling your being sidetracked still involved a lot of writing. Well done, amigo.

    3. Hah! Squeaking by totally counts. I'm a squeaker myself. :) I need to catch up on your published short stories. I'm pretty sure I've seen tweets about two in the last few weeks. Congrats on those.

  3. I'm on the monthly plan, and I managed to get a new story out last month. Already have this month's story out, to boot. Back to the revision trenches I go...

    1. So you're ahead of the game, huh? Good luck with revisions!

    2. Ahead for now -- we'll see how long that lasts. 20k down, 120 to go.

    3. Good for you, Milo! Congrats on reaching your goals in March. Best of luck on those revisions--you've been working, working, working on those. Will be worth it though.

  4. Behold! Bad fiction: http://www.unlikely-story.com/stories/twisty-by-siobhan-gallagher/

    (Don't worry, it's an April Fool's Day joke from Unlikely Story.)

    Finished not one, but two stories this month, which makes up for last month. Still haven't finished February's story tho.. *sigh*

    1. Freena/Freebie/Freeto -- best -- character -- ever. Enjoyed all the mistakes, too. Nicely (badly) done, Siobhan.

    2. Oh my, Siobhan, that was such a fun story. I really needed that laugh. Thank you. ♥ Congrats on finishing two stories this month. I know you would have finished your February story IN February, except that darn month is too short. ;)

  5. Yep, I'm a March Monster winner! I wrote and subbed two pieces early in March. I've also been - and still am! - writing a ton of micro fiction for the Blogging from A-Z Challenge. (I know that doesn't count for the subbing part of April's W1S1 - will have to get on that soon!) :)

    1. I'm still recovering from A2Z 2011. Can't wait to check out your posts.

    2. Congrats on earning the monster award, Madeline! Writing micro fiction for the A-Z challenge is a great idea. I read your first three stories. Wow! Really powerful writing. I'm sensing a theme about them.

  6. It was a monstrous March for me as well. Squeaked by, really, but a squeak is as good as a roar to a blind zebra.

    I'm surprise to see that I had nothing published in March--it seemed so busy. I am, however, doing a daily blog about the 2014 project in case folks want to join that conversation.

    I've also begun to comment on slush stories received for the Triangulation: Parch anthology.

    Congratulations to everyone who had a productive March. We do kind of rock around here.

    1. Way to go, March Monster. I'll have to check out your posts.

    2. From one monster squeaker to another, congrats! :) Wow, two daily blogs, you are a glutton. I'm intrigued by your plan comment on slush stories at your blog. I'm definitely going to follow along with that. Best of luck with the Triangulation: Parch anthology. Very cool theme.

  7. That last week in March nearly did me in, but I squeezed in a 140 flash submission at the eleventh hour, so I'm a MONSTER! :)

    March was a good publication month for me--two stories published. I also received an acceptance on March 31 from EDF. I was pretty shocked to see it show up in the TOC for April. I need to decide ASAP if I want to make any changes based on editorial comments.

    My goal for April is to revise more of my rough drafts. I couldn't seem to focus on those in March, and I have a huge heap that deserve a chance at publication.

    Happy Writing in April, everyone! :)

    1. Nicely done, ToC buddy. I decided to tweak mine a little -- glad they let us do that prior to publication.
