Week #38 Check In

It's the end of Week 38!

This is also the time where all flavors merge into pumpkin spice everything. Hey, whatever keeps you writing!

 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!

    My email inbox has been reluctant to deliver news this week. I'm waiting to hear back on a number of things. Sigh.

    W: Finished up a round of edits on my latest story and sent it off for a critique.

    S: Sent out a bunch of reprint submissions.

    Here's hoping that good news comes this week... *squints at inbox*

    1. Fingers crossed for a more cooperative inbox, Beth!

  2. Quiet week. I missed my word count goals, and at this point I have to accept the fact that I just need to get out of the house to get my fiction writing done. On the plus side, the house is fully Swiffered and the front entrance is freshly painted. :)

    No word on any of the items out for submission.

    Have a good week, everyone!

    1. Best of luck in escaping the house to meet those goals!

  3. A good week--finished a longer piece that I'm planning on polishing this week for submission, along with one other. Edited and subbed a flash piece, and got four drabble stories accepted at SpeckLit! Excited about that! Waiting to hear back on five others.

    Hope everyone's week has been great!

    1. Hooray for the batch of acceptances! Here's hoping for more good news soon.
