Week #29 Weigh-in

It's the end of Week 29!

How's it gone this week? 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. I've seen them but never gotten a chance to really check out an issue. They always have sharp looking cover design.
      Good luck!

  4. W: I'm currently working on a new Chicken Soup story that I hope to have submittable by the end of the week.

    S: I went submissions crazy this week as I caught on on things. I sent a new Chicken Soup story, 16 poems, and 3 reprints.

    This has been an awfully dry month for acceptances. Here's hoping that changes soon.

    1. Way to get the subs out the door, Beth! The acceptances will start showing up before too long.

  5. I've been having a writing frenzy! Wrote 5 flash stories, added 2000 words plus to another and have submitted 2! Phew!

  6. On vacation last week, didn't sit down to do any writing during my time at the beach. I've got yet another packed week this week but, like the NY lottery says: Hey, you never know. Also waiting to hear from one story that made the final cut, but I'm not holding out hope--I've had probably five such stories rejected in the last 6 months. Not doing well! Hoping things turn around soon.

    1. Those second-tier rejections can be tough, but it means that the work is high quality, and it's likely just the immediate needs of the editors that's causing the rejections. They'll turn into acceptances soon!

  7. I've been working on some longer form stuff, but found time to polish up a couple of shorts and get them out in the last week. I've gone a long spell without any response on the stuff I have out, and I'm hoping that I'll start hearing back by the end of the month.

    Keep writing, everyone!

  8. Got my July W1S1 written and subbed - whew! Still busy at Camp NaNo but it's going well.

    I filled in the W1S1 Acceptance form a bit ago - two more acceptances! - which brings my total for the W1S1 2015 Hall of Fame up to 4...so far.... :)

    Tyrean Martinson

    Tried to comment on site, but my comment disappeared. I subbed a couple of stories this week and re-subbed a rejected story

    Hi Tyrean.

    I sometimes have that problem. I have to select my "comment identity" first (google in my case), then post the comment. It disappears, but now my commenter identity shows up as Stephen Ramey and I'm able to comment properly. I don't know why this happens. If I figure it out I'll try to fix it. For now it's one of those annoying mysteries of life.

    In any case, congratulations on your week. I wish I could claim similar accomplishments :-)

    Best,
    Stephen

    1. I want to add that I always have this problem now. I have learned the hard way to type in my response and copy it, do the log in, then paste in the text again.
