Week #22 Check-In

The end of Week 22 has arrived!

How's it been for you? Have your words flowed like Dandelion Wine, or did Marionettes, Inc tie you up? 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.

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 put food in a hungry writer's pantry. 

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. Did some long hand writing this week for a change, which was fun and turned out well. I got some positive responses from a few magazines and one rejection I need to shop around. It's going to be a busy week/month so hopefully I can get a head start--I'm nervous about finding time this month to do some longer pieces I've kept on the back burner, but I think I can swing it.

    Hope everyone's had a good week! May has flown by!

  2. Added somewhere around 40 pages to the Original Graphic Novel script I've been working on. I'm hoping to finish most of the rest of it this week. (Now that I seem to be hitting a groove with it.) Also got a "holding for further consideration" note on one submission.

    No S/R/A/P this week.

    Come on June! :)

  3. Hit my minimum writing goals this week, so I'm happy with that. One rejection, which came with some good feedback. I should be able to tweak that ms and get it back out either tonight or tomorrow.

    Have a good week, everyone!

    1. Nice! Always encouraging to have positive words. Get it back out there ASAP!

  4. Wrote one new and subbed four, including the new one! Another acceptance too, so things are looking up! Roll on summer! Happy writing!

  5. got a story written today and sent out. a nice feeling. thanks for having this community to help lazy folk like myself to keep going


  6. I wrote a story called Cats and Their Tricks and submitted it along with a photo for a contest to win pet supplies :)

  7. Written and subbed. Hope I'm returning to some kind of routine because I really have no excuses not to! I agree with David about this site being motivational (not about being lazy).

  8. Put words in front of one another. Wrote a short story - it turns out the submissions window doesn't open until August 15th so I guess I'm ahead with that one. I'll work on my May write and submit next week.
    However, I did have a short story go live today with Imaginate's first issue. :) And, they even paid me. :)
