Week 26 and Month 6 Check In!


It's the end of Week 26 and the end of Month 6 too. Where does the time go?

How's it gone? Any triumphs? Any disasters? 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, here's your chance to tell the world. If you've had something W1S1-related accepted, tell us so we can add you to the Write1Sub1 Hall of Fame. But if life 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. Wrote very little but not surprising really! One rejection and 0 submissions.
    Roll on July! ;)

  2. Hello again! It's been a while since I dropped by, mainly because I've been too busy with novels and nonfiction projects to do any short stories. This week, though, I wrote one and subbed three. I think I'm going to have to go from the weekly to the monthly challenge. Between my novels, my ghostwriting, and some nonfiction stuff, I can't keep up the once-a-week challenge. Anyway, I'll write one in July!

    1. Monthly is good; a lot of us do that. Best of luck with the subs.

  3. I had a poem accepted at Star*Line and a rejection from a major magazine (bah!). I did write a new flash fic over the weekend and hope to edit that in the next few days.

    Write on!

  5. Sooooo little time to write in June but I managed to hammer out a flash piece to meet my write1sub1 goals. I subbed two and got one rejection and one "maybe" letter, and still waiting to hear from wotf and one other story that made a final cut. July is going to be just as busy if not more--moving, starting a new job, online classes, etc--but I'm optimistic that I can squeak out a story. Here's hoping. Write on everyone!

    1. Best of luck with fitting it all in, Devin. Don't let reality get in the way too much!

  6. Sort of a ho-hum month in terms of many rewards. “Korean Sojourn” was published by Pif at http://www.pifmagazine.com/2015/07/korean-sojourn/
    ]
    And “Wallet Full of Money” was published June 1 by Short-Story.Me at http://www.short-story.me/general-stories/801-a-wallet-full-of-money.html

    “Gassing Joe” was rejected by Out of the Gutter”, as was “Hair Peace.” “Gassing Joe” was then sent to Shotgun Honey. “Paying the Devil” was subbed to Azure, and “Angels Mucking in My Garden” was rejected by New Myths. Win a few, lose a few.

    1. Sounds like a pretty good month to me: congrats on those acceptances, Walter.

  7. I hope I can join the challenge super late - at least unofficially. I just subbed two hint fiction stories today. "Her hands" went to Nanoism, and "Tudor City Teal" went to Nail Polish Stories. I guess I'll see if anything comes of them.

  8. Had my hint fiction story, "Major Tom," accepted at Espresso Stories, a non-paying market. I'm still excited whenever someone wants to read my fiction. :)
    As far as writing goes . . . well, I'm in the middle of revisions for two big projects and my short story writing seems to be meandering.
