Week #36 Check-in


It's the end of Week 36!

Have a Labor Day picnic to celebrate accomplishing your writing goals this week or for month 8.

 Whether you're a weekly  or  monthly  (or anything in between) W1S1 participant, it's time to brag! Have you faced any challenges? Make any breakthroughs? 

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. Hi folks! I hope your September is off to a good start.

    W: Wrote a 900-word flash this week. Mostly, though, I have been working on the copy edits for my novella that comes out from Harper Voyager in November: Wings of Sorrow and Bone. Girl power and gremlins!

    S: Submitted that new story, so I have my W1S1 minimum fulfilled. Good, considering how the rest of the month looks...

    If you're having a hard time slogging toward your writing goals right now--the check-ins have sure been sparse--maybe this advice from Neil Gaiman will help you along.

    1. Great article by Neil Gaiman--thanks for the link, Beth! Also, love NaNoWriMo and all they do for people who want to write but need a good kick in the ass to get going haha

  2. It's been a good week, despite two rejections (one at the final round). Edited August's story and got 3,000 words into September's. I'm planning on sending August's story to WotF after some edits and September's story to Heroic Fantasy Quarterly. I've got a few new story ideas and a fiance who needs quiet to study . . . should be able to get a good amount done. ;-)

  3. Late in replying but I have some good news! My story 'Synchronysi' won a competition on the 1st, so that got my month off to a super start! (I'm bang on target!) I've been doing an end of summer/ before school writing 'audit' and rewriting/resubmitting lots of stories I have on file. I'm also waiting for a host of replies. Who knows what the autumn has in store?
