Week #16 Check-In


The end of Week 16 has arrived!

How's it been for you? Have your words soared like The Rocket or do you feel like you're Downwind From Gettysburg? 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. WOOT! 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.

Please report ONLY accepted/published stories that you wrote as part of your participation in W1S1 (2011-2015).




(Please note that reports will not immediately appear, as they must be verified/processed by the 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.

  2. Two acceptances last week: "Return of the Knave" (my homage to The Princess Bride) to Intrigue Publishing for their YA adventurers anthology + "Ghosts of Space Command" (a Captain Quasar tale) to Perihelion Science Fiction.

    And speaking of the captain, my first novel Captain Bartholomew Quasar and the Space-Time Displacement Conundrum" starts serialization this week @ Every Day Novels.

    Write on, everybody!

  3. W: Continued to write 3 tweet-sized poems or prompts a day for #TwitterFiction. My big work this week was the first round of revisions on last week's story. I rewrote almost every line and that thing is 8k. Yeesh.

    S: More promo stuff.

    P: Fantasy Scroll published my story "My Brother's Keeper."

    A: I had a major acceptance in the past few days but I don't want to say more until I have the contract. I'm excited!

    Write on, folks! The end of April is nigh...

  5. Missed last week's check-in but I have been writing away, and I'm happy to report that I had my first pro-paying fiction sale: a flash piece for Nature!

    I've been working on longer-form stuff lately, and took my eyes off revisions, so I didn't get anything submitted this week. I intend to get that corrected this coming week and see more stuff go out the door.

    Keep writing, everyone!

  8. Mostly novel work this week, including an acceptance into a storybundle.com SciFi bundle for The Genehunter. On the short fiction front, had a couple of flash pieces published: Aggy in Fine Linen (a pro sale) and Judgement Day in Apocrypha & Abstractions.
