Week #18 Check-In

The end of Week 18 is upon us!

How's it been for you? Has it been The Million Year Picnic or does it feel like The Long Years are dragging you down? 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 our acceptances and paid publications. (Thanks to Jeff Chapman for keeping us organized.)

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 new books on a writer's shelf. 

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. Good week! I had emails from Chicken Soup for the Soul saying that two stories I wrote last year are in final consideration for a book. I hope to know for certain in July.

    W: Wrote new poems this week to finish up the April Poem a Day Challenge. My big project has been a revamped version of my website to prepare for my book release this fall.

    S: Sent out batches of new poems. Some rejected already, but...

    Accepted: 3 poems accepted to Star*Line!

  7. Have been very bad about posting here, but I have been writing, subbing and staying focused.
    Currently working on a Middle-Grade novel, and trying to get some of my story "inventory" out the door.
    Missed the April roundup - did meet my monthly goal for April!
    Cheers to all, nice to see people staying with it!

  8. Written one, submitted one, one rejection and one acceptance from A Long Short Story.
    Devastated that all my Word files have been corrupted by a virus/scam DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION so, if you don't already, back up your files regularly.

    1. That absolutely sucks. There's a special place in you know where for folks who write destructive code.

      Delete
    2. Ugh... I think this happens to all of us at one point or another. I lost all mine in a hard drive crash a few years ago, so now I back up everything in the cloud.

      On the bright side, consider it a chance to put down fresh ideas! New stories! Brand new adventures! Right?
