Week #33 Check In

The end of Week 33 is here!

How did it go for you? Was it a week of write none, sub none, or was your pen on fire? 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. Hi Writers! :) This was the week of the rejection avalanche for me. Ugh. On the bright side, I made it into second and third round voting at a few markets where, in the past, I've tanked out after the first round. I resubmitted one rejection, and I'm mulling over the editorial comments on a second, trying to decide if I want to change anything before resubmitting. I wrote two flash stories. No publications or acceptances.

    Have a great writing week, everyone! :)

    1. The rejection avalanches can be discouraging, but it sounds like your latest work is getting traction where you've struggle before. Keep at it Von, and way to go getting those stories back out the door and onto and editor's desk, where they belong!

  2. Hi guys. I wrote and submitted a story this week and got my 20th acceptance from Every Day Fiction. It's kind of cool.

    Wrote "Ten Lonely Rain Gods" to the Deluge Anthology by Garden Gnome Press
    Accepted "The Cabinets of Doctor Cal and Gary" from Every Day Fiction

    Keep writing all

  3. My birthday was this week, so I took it off and went on vacation. Going to have to kick my writing into high gear when I get back if I want to finish August's story in time to keep up with my W1S1 Challenge. It's funny--I think my writing is getting better but I haven't been doing it as much lately. I really have to amend that.

    1. Happy birthday! What a great week to go on vacation. There's still half the month left, so you have time to get that story done.

    2. Glad to hear that you're sensing some growth in your work.
      Way to go, and happy birthday, Devin!

  4. W: I finished revisions on my sequel novel and returned it to my editor on Friday. Whew! The deadline was the end of the month. Now I can devote my time to a new story and for prep for The Clockwork Dagger's release next month. (Under a month now. ACK.)

    S: The revised novel! I also sent out a new poem and today I sent out some reprint subs.

    Acceptances: Like Von, I had something of a rejection avalanche this week. Poetry rejections.. you submit in batches, they return in batches. I did have two acceptances out of the flood, though! One to New Myths and one to Devilfish Review.

  5. It was a write 1 submit none week for me.

    No activity on my outstanding submissions.

    Keep at it, everyone!

    1. Hiya, Dan! :) Some weeks are like that. It's good that you wrote one. The response time on submissions over the past few months has seemed excessively long. Maybe fall will speed things up.

  6. My Perihelion flash story was published last week: http://www.perihelionsf.com/1408/anomalies.htm

    In other news, Worldcon was fine. There's a report coming sometime soon. And then also interviews! I've interviewed three amazing authors for XB-1 magazine. However, the interviews are getting published along with translations of their stories, and that will most likely be during the first half of 2015. Only after that, I can post large snippets of the interviews on my blog.

  7. Just returned from my holiday all fuelled up and raring to go when my laptop went into slow motion. So just editing this week until I get it back. Saying that I managed to resubmit one rejected story before hand, let's see how it goes. Happy belated birthday, Devin! By the way, it's great being able to share with folks who don't mind my wittering on about writing!
