Week #22 Check-in

The end of Week 22 is upon us!

How's it been for you? Have you been experiencing the Machineries of Joy or do you need A Medicine for Melancholy 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. June 1st was interesting. I had a rejection and two acceptances! The two yeses were for stories, which is very nice since I have so few out right now.

    Written: a new poem for the month.

    Submitted: new poem.

    Acceptances: a story to Every Day Fiction, and the other I won't say in public, pending contract.

    Published: Poem "Quercus Californica" in Tales of the Talisman IX 4.

    Write on!

  2. Wrote one, submitted two, two acceptances and one rejection. Strange thing was, I thought the rejected story was better than those accepted!

  3. Oops, I posted this under the wrong week--Sheesh, I really am out of practice.

    I'm back! :) For the month of May, I switched to the once a month plan. (I knew I would be too strapped with doctor's appointments for my kiddo to complete and submit once a week. Still no diagnoses and no huge improvement, but lots of PT.)

    At the end of April, my Rocky character decided to tell me a story that needed more than a single flash. I'm now writing it 1000 words at a time, trying to keep it organized in a flash kind of way since that's what I know best. I've written roughly 40 scenes--40,000 words. I don't have all of them in the computer yet--many were scribbled in a notebook, old school style. :)

    I finished one short story in May and submitted it.

    I had one short story published in May--Waiting for Midnight in the May issue of Romance Magazine.

    Happy Writing, everyone!

  4. I had an accident and have been out of action for a while. Getting back in now. One article accepted by Flash Fiction Chronicles. Did some writing, but very little submission.
    I think I will be doing the monthly for a while.

  6. Also late...

    Very slooooooow month for me. Been writing/editing for a game, but had time to write a flash piece--but it needs work. Also started another story which will carry over and be my June story.

    Two acceptances--a lost one from Bards & Sages (editor had the acceptance in the draft folder, but never formally sent it), and one from Alternate Hilarities 3: Hysterical Realms.

    Published "The Last Old House" from Horror D'oeuvres (2nd sale with them, w00t!)

    1. Nice! Well done. A lost acceptance beats a lost rejection any day.

    2. Heh, guess you're write. :)

      And apparently I missed this, a publication in Bete Noire's May issue: https://www.createspace.com/4835444 ($$)

  7. May was a tough month on the "other" part of my life, so my writing part suffered. But I am hoping June will be better.
    I did manage to sub one in May and one this past weekend. One rejection in May for an April story. Have some stories languishing in some slooooooo markets.
    Congrats to everyone sticking with writing, subbing, and posting!!
