Week #45 Check-in

The end of Week 45 is upon us!

How's it been for you? Have you felt as if you're writing in a Wonderful Ice Cream Suit, or more like The Man in the Rorschach ShirtHere's your chance to tell everybody about it, whether you're a weekly or monthly (or anything in between) W1S1 participant.

If you've managed to write a story and submit a story, shout it from the rooftops. Yahoo! If you've had something W1S1-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're all in this together.

This year, we have cool forms for reporting our acceptances and paid publications. (Thanks to Jeff Chapman for keeping us organized.)

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 food in a writer's belly. 

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. Written and submitted, a polite rejection from Literary Orphans and a publication:

  2. My week was:

    W1: Four Micros
    S1: flash to Pure Slush

    Accept: "Prodigy" (flash) by Pure Slush
    Published: "A Ceremony of Innocence" at Apocrypha and Abstractions.

  3. I've been writing and subbing like a good 'un. So much so that I've forgotten to report in for quite a while.

    Here's a story I wrote back when I first joined W1S1 and have finally placed. It's been published in three (very short) parts but they're all on the site.

  4. Nothing but Nano again this week. I broke 25,000 words! I'll get back into the short story challenge in December.
