Week #28 Check In

The end of Week 28 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. Slightly odd to be replying to my own post, but here goes - one acceptance to report: a sale to Nature Futures. Also worked on my submission for the B is for Broken anthology and submitted that.

  2. Accepted: "The Invitation" to The WiFiles. This one was my Week#14 story from 2011 and survived 17 rejections before finding a home.

    Jotted down some ideas for a few Captain Quasar misadventures and finished edits on my time-traveling detective novel. After a final round of proofing, it'll be ready to hit the query circuit.

    Write on, everybody!

    Keep on truckin'!

    1. Woot! That sounds like a fantastic week. Have you worked more foreign language reprint magic? Or are these all domestic sales? (Either way, impressive.) :)

    My big news this week is that Publishers Weekly reviewed my book and had only nice things to say, some of them very nice. Yaaaaaay!

  8. Hiya, Writers! Have I mentioned how much I like being back on the once a week plan??? It's great. I'm revisiting old stories and churning out new ones. Makes me happy and helps push the cobwebs and other gunk out of my head. :)

    I wrote a new flash "Arctic Hippos," and I'm just about to submit a flash, "Uncle Charlie."

    No rejections, no publications, and no acceptances, but I did receive an invitation to submit to an anthology--those are fun.

    Happy Writing, everyone! ♥

    1. Thrilled the weekly plan is working for you, Von! "Arctic Hippos" deserves to do well on the strength of its name alone...
