Week #40 and Month 9 Check In


It's the end of Week 40 and the end of Month 9!

As we close in on the end of the year, push yourself. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. A finish line that's only a few weeks away.

 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. Managed to write and submit a couple this week. Am going to sift through submissions receiving no reply and chase up or resubmit.

  3. W: Finished up edits on a longer story and submitted that.

    S: Sent in that new story. I also sent out several batches of poetry right at the end and start of the month, as markets prepared to close or open.

    Two acceptances landed this week, including one this morning! The first is for a poem, and the new one is for a reprint story to be podcast.

    I had two new poems published this week:
    – a YA poem with a magical take on bullying and abuse: “Obsidian” at Kaleidotrope
    – a somewhat creepy steampunk poem called “The City” in Mythic Delirium

    I'm expecting things to get crazy as October progresses, so I'm trying to get lots of little things done now while I have the chance.

  4. Got some work done on October's story after finishing two for September! Feeling good. Also had a drabble published at specklit.com. Waiting to hear back on a handful of submissions, feeling pretty optimistic. Have a great week everyone!
