Week #33 Check In


It's the end of Week 33!

Are you sweating it out at the end of summer? Is your writing on fire? Whether you're a weekly  or  monthly  (or anything in between) W1S1 participant, it's time to brag! Even if you didn't do anything, you should brag about how amazingly unproductive your week has been. 

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. The flood of poetry rejections has continued. Woe. I did have time this week to send out a few more batches, too--the circle of life for writers...

    My big task this week has been wrapping up my novella edits. I think it's about ready to go. *knock on wood*

    I'm also getting ready to head to WorldCon in Spokane in a few days! I won't post next Sunday, as I'll be flying homeward then.

    Wishing you all a week of acceptances and positive word counts!

  2. I haven't had any news on the stories that are out on submission, but I did send out a new story, "Letting Go: A Siren's Song" to a Sirens anthology. I had a bit of fun writing it so I figure it's a win even if it doesn't get picked up right away.

    1. A fun story is always a win! Good luck, and if it doesn't get picked up there I'm sure it'll find the right home eventually, Tyrean.

  3. I didn't have a huge week in terms of word count, but inspiration did strike for a scene that just wasn't coming off as fresh as I wanted. Now I'm excited to dive back into it, so I'm counting that as a win.

    Have a good week, everyone!

  4. I got two stories out this month so I'm ahead of my monthly W1S1 goal. Hmm, and the month isn't over yet.... :)

  5. No rejections this week and written one flash piece! What's more the anthology Once Bitten was finally released so I had my first online book launch - feel like a proper writer now! ;)
    Let's hope it lasts!

  6. A good week for me! My birthday, an acceptance to Every Day Fiction, and a publication in BEYOND: SPACE OPERA. Also wrote 4000+ words on a new story I've been playing around with all summer. Glad to finally get it down on paper. Hope to send it to Writers of the Future next month.
