Week #47 Check-in

The end of Week 47 is upon us!

How's it been for you? Have the words flown like The Golden Kite, the Silver Windor did it pass too quickly like All Summer in a Day Here'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 hot water in a writer's shower. 

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. Made requested revisions to the Super-Secret Project this week, which bumped it up to almost 39k (from 34k). Decided the Space Opera had started in the wrong place so I wrote a new opening chapter and will continue to work/rework what was already written, but it's at about 23k for this month.

    No other news to report at this point. Just plugging along toward the end of the year.

  2. Lots of stuff got in the way of writing this week so nothing much to report on the w1s1 front. I keep revising things trying to get them to 'work'. I have it in mind to have completed all my half finished projects by the end of the year. Guess I better get a move on!
    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you living in the States & Canada!

  4. W: Still doing the poem-a-day challenge. I started on a new story this weekend that I need to have in submittable condition in a month; almost 1500 words on that so far.

    S: I plan to send out at least one new poem tomorrow. Otherwise, I've done a lot of resubs this week because of the large influx of rejections this month (like twenty). Ugh.

    Happy Thanksgiving wishes to folks in the States! Happy winter wishes to everyone else! No matter the distractions of the week, write on!

    1. Way to go with the poetry. (I stink at poetry, so I'm impressed by anyone who can write it steadily.) :)

      Boo on the rejections, but good work on getting them back out there. Sometimes that's the hardest part.

  5. I had a rejection letter on a rotten day all around last week - one of those days that competes with Alexander's Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. On the plus side, I just submitted a new story to Espresso.com - a non-paying hint fiction site. It always feels better to get something new out the door quickly after a rejection letter comes.
