Week #17 Check-In


The end of Week 17 has arrived!

How's it been for you? Has it been like The Million Year Picnic, or has The Dragon spoiled your word count? 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 tea in a writer's cup. 

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. I've been focused on work-related writing and working on my novel outline, and the week slipped past without getting a new short story done.

    Two rejections & two resubmissions though, so I'm keeping the work out there. Now to go create more.

    Keep at it, everyone!

    1. Best of luck with the novel outlining! May all the pieces fit together.

  2. I've hopped all over this week. I finished my initial read of my new story and have it up for critique. I've also worked on blog promo posts, and this weekend, finally revising a bunch of poems I wrote back in November.

    S: Sent out some poems, including a new one from this month for my W1S1. I hope to get a lot more poetry out by the end of the month.

    Accepted: A good week! I had two poems accepted at two different markets.

  3. This was actually a pretty lousy week. Hit a very uncomfortable emotional low that scuttled my attempts to write mid-week. (Writer angst and life angst is not a good combination.) Picked up a little over the weekend though so overall managed about 2k words on a novelette.

    No submissions this week, but one rejection (Betwixt).

    Onward!

    1. That might be "all," but it's also awesome. Keep up the good work!

  5. Didn't do any writing or subbing this week because I WAS ON VACATION IN DISNEY WORLD!! Great place to imagine new stories, though! But I'm back this week and back to the grind, hoping to finish the last touches on April's story and meet my monthly goal. Lots to do in May--going to really try to put more than one story together each of the next few months to get this backlog of ideas out.

  6. hi guys

    I had a crappy life week, but some how I did write out a piece and get it submitted. It was a first, I texted it to myself when I was at a six year olds birthday party at a bowil ing alley. and then I assembled the pieces and sent it out. This was not an ideal way to write a place. I feel I spent more time fixing what I texted than writing.

    W and S: The Truth and Full Disclosure About Table Side Guacamole (sent to Story Shack)

    be well everyone

  7. Who said April is the cruelest month? Someone like that old guy in England? OMDB! will publish “Acting Lessons” shortly. A preview is up at http://www.overmydeadbody.com/actless.html.

    Writers Haven accepted “Black Grammie,” a bit of horror, but publication is delayed until the site is reconfigured to Google's mobile specs.

    “Premarital Planning” was published by Bewildering Stories on Apr. 13 at http://www.bewilderingstories.com/issue615/premarital_planning.html.

    “Stella’s Chili” will be published in Every Day Fiction for a Cinco de Mayo issue May 5, 2015, publication.

    “Hair Peace” was written and subbed to Shotgun Honey; “Sooner Boy, Get Your Gun” was written at the invitation of Big Pulp.; and “Jump Cut” was subbed to The Story Shack.
