Week #42 Check-In

It's the end of Week 42!

It's getting to the spooky time of the year. Have you planted your words wisely? Is a harvest nigh? Let us know.

 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 a few pieces, mainly non-fiction and read one out on local radio.

  2. Wrote one and have been working on another two or three.
    I'm busy compiling notes for NaNoWriMo which I've signed up for for the first time and I'm looking forward to.
    One acceptance and no rejections this week!

  3. I've been totally sick with a cold this week AND had family visiting. I had little brain power to write but I was fortunate to have a lot of stories to read and critique, so that kept me productive in one regard.

    I had two poems published this week: “Why You Will Listen and Drown” in Starline 38.4 and “For the Cause” in the race-themed issue of Eye to the Telescope.

  4. I wrote one over the last month which I submitted last week for the anthology of an organisation, an acronym for whose name is SWIG. Pretty excited/nervous about that one!
