Week #29 Check In

The end of Week 29 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. Wrote and subbed a fantasy short, which will be my piece for the month. Although I'm also working on a flash story, which will hopefully also go out soon.

    Write on all!

  2. Started a new Captain Quasar tale about alien kidnappers whilst riding the train this week. That was fun.

    Nearing the end of my final edits on BackTracker -- 100K down, 50K to go. Hoping to have it query-ready by mid-week. Then planning to sleep for a week or two.

    Write on, everybody!

  3. novelling hard this week. But I did finish a bit of non-fiction about Mr Benn. Who remembers Mr Benn? Three acceptances one to Daily Science Fiction, did I mention that last week? Bears repeating. And two to Beam Me Up, which means my stories will hit the airwaves. coolio

    1. Sounds like an awesome week, Deb! (I swear ALL your writing weeks sound pretty darn awesome. :) ) Can't wait to read your DSF story.

    2. I loved Mr. Benn greatly when I was young. As if by magic, the shopkeeper appears! Man. Although, in my head he was always conflated with Tony Benn, which might amuse UK readers.

      Anyway - many congrats. Another great week's work.

  5. Compiling July's story this week with a few days off. Got a rejection, looking into places to re-sub it. As usual, lots of ideas and little time, but July's story should be short and sweet and might open up some time for new stuff. Here's hoping.

    Congrats on a good week, everyone!

  6. W: more blog posts for the book release

    S: still haven't sent out the new story because I'm hoping a market will open up. Sent out poems and a reprint story.

    Published: my poem "Suddenly, a Unicorn" at the new market Grievous Angel.

    1. Thanks for sharing "Suddenly, a Unicorn." A very powerful piece. And I liked Grievous Angel--all three pieces they selected were well-done.

    2. Loved the poem and the ending was a surprise.

    3. Congrats on a great week, Beth. I also loved the poem.

  7. Hi Writers! :) It was a pretty good writing week for me. I wrote a new short story with characters who surprised me, and I cleaned up two chapters in my Rocky book.

    I submitted a literary short story called Used Books.

    No rejections and no publications. (But I'm pretty sure I have a rejection coming from DSF, just a matter of time.)

    Have an awesome week, everyone! :)
