July Machineries of Joy Blogfest

Are YOU a "July Machineries of Joy" 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 stayed with the program receives the July Machineries of Joy Blogfest Award (named after the Ray Bradbury short story).

So if you've met your Write1Sub1 writing goals during the month of July, just leave a comment below. And if you had something Write1Sub1-related published this month that you're particularly proud of, post the link to that, too, and we'll check it out!


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

  2. I met my goal, mostly. I wrote a new story but haven't sent it out because I'm waiting for a market to respond to another story in their possession. I'm hoping that long wait bodes well.

    I'm most proud of my story "The Cartography of Shattered Trees" in FAE.

    1. I really must get a copy of FAE. Here's hoping that long wait works out well...

    2. I'm looking forward to reading FAE. I read an awesome review on Amazon. Best of luck with those subs. :)

  3. Yep, hit my goals for the month (a couple written and subbed) - although summer is tough for writing, I find, with so much going on. Proudest achievement this month was certainly my Nature acceptance. Still delighted about that. Roll on August!

    1. The weekly challenge is tough. I think June and July are probably the toughest--those are the hump months. I'm glad you're keeping up! Wishing you the best in August. :)

    1. Congratulations on meeting your monthly goals, Julie! I think the summer months are hard on everyone! I hope you're able to write more in August! :)

    2. I'm afraid I won't since I'm spending most of the month traveling. However, even writers need to take a break sometimes :). I hope to write my August story in the remaining days before my departure to London and then only occassionally write something on my travels when I'm up for it. Is anyone else from here going to Worldcon?

    3. Hey, Julie. Absolutely! Writers need a break sometimes, and new adventures make for more things to write about later on. :) I'm pretty sure I've heard about at least one or two other W1S1 folks going to Worldcon. It sounds amazing.

  7. July was a good writing and submitting month for me. No publications or acceptances, but I'm thrilled to be writing on the weekly plan again. The practice and routine of the weekly actually makes writing easier for me. Let's hope it pays off with an acceptance in August. :) Wishing everyone a happy and productive month!
