Week #27 Check In

The end of Week 27 is here!

How did it go this week? Did the words flow like wine or was it a week of Write none Sub none? Here's your chance to tell everybody about it, whether you're a weekly or monthly (or anything in between) Write1Sub1 participant.

If you've managed to write a story and submit a story (or poem) this week, let everyone know about it in the comments. And if you've had something Write1Sub1-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've all been there.

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. Well, I missed the end of June, but have already finished two rough drafts and submitted one new story for July. The long holiday weekend has made a huge difference for me, and of course the fact that I was so close to achieving W1S1 in June gave me a head start.

  2. Accepted: "Captain Quasar and the Carpethrian Call of the Wild" will appear in next year's B is for Broken anthology with a slightly different title.

    Rejected: Omni Reboot wanted to publish one of my stories, but they didn't want to pay me for it. I declined. Probably the first time I've rejected an acceptance.

    Submitted: "Hang on for the Ride," my July W1S1, is out the door.

    Edits on my time-traveling detective novel are going well: 90K down, 60K to go. Planning to have it query-ready by August.

    Write on, everybody!

    1. Great stuff, Milo. And well done for rejecting something you weren't happy with. So, Quasar's going to be in the B is for Broken anthology, huh? Cool.

    2. Good week, Milo, and I second Simon's comment about walking away from an offer you aren't happy with.

    3. Omni Robot wants to reject one of my stories, but I told them "no way!" (heh). You're getting there, Milo, if respected venues are hitting you up for stories.

      Meet you in Asimov's!

  3. Accepted: A reprint story to Escape Pod and a poem to Grievous Angel.

    Published: My poem "Mad Scientist's Lament" in Lakeside Circus. Plus, this is about me and not by me, but my hometown newspaper did a feature on me!

  5. Managed to sneak in a submission to WotF contest with seven minutes left until the deadline haha why do I always do that? I swear that story was finished a month and a half ago! Anyway, actually still behind on June's story so I'm finishing it up now, gonna put it aside and start a sci-fi flash piece for July. Hoping to get it subbed this week. I got a rejection today, so that story needs a home somewhere too. Lots to do, as usual.

  6. Off my mark for the week-- the holiday threw my calendar a curve. I did get some writing done, thanks to Habit RPG, I just did a poor job of focusing in on projects in order to get them completed and out the door.

    No rejections/acceptances this week. Looking forward to getting out plenty of freshly edited stories this week!

  7. A week, you say? I swear it was but a day!

    W1: "Girl Power" (flash); "The Romantic" (flash)
    S1: flash to New Flash Fiction

    Accept: "Leaves" by Dactyl
    Published: Not this week; you have to wait.

  8. Got one new pro publication last month ("Vzduchoplavci Aury" in Czech magazine Pevnost) but the story was written before I joined this site, so nothing new to W1S1 publications. Otherwise, not much. I wrote one story last month, ending up with an average wordcount of just over 300 words per day. I was aiming at 1000. I hope to make up for this in July.

    1. Congratulations on the publication anyway - 300 words per day is a pretty healthy average I think. Best of luck with hitting 1000.

  9. Super late checking in this week, but I'm on schedule for July. I submitted two stories and wrote one. I received two rejections, but I was expecting them so the sting was minimal.

    I'm happy to be back on the once a week plan. Have a great writing and submitting week, everyone! :)
