Week #43 Check-In

It's the end of Week 43!

Are you keeping up, meeting your goals? Is the moon full or foolish? Do tell.

 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 edit letter arrived for my next novel, and I have about a month to work on that. That's going to be my focus for sure.

    I had a major short story acceptance this week and I'm dying to get the contract and the all-clear to make it all public.

    I had a poem published at Devilfish Review: "Reminisces of a Kraken Caretaker."

    Write on!

  2. WOW! Congrats Beth on the edit letter and the short story acceptance--can't wait to hear all about it and read it when it comes out.

    I wrote about 2,000 new words on October's story, which had been on hold for a week or two while I studied for a grad school interview. The break was good actually because it gave me time to think about where I wanted to go with it. The words came faster and easier than I had expected, though I think there's a decent bit of editing to be done with the plot.

    Hoping to do some more 100-word drabbles soon, and work on a longer piece for November. Keep it up everyone!

    1. Hooray for a productive break! Best of luck with the grad school process, too.

  3. Productive month, but not as rewarding as September. “Black Grammie” was accepted by Liquid Imagination for their upcoming issue, my second acceptance there. Two other acceptances scheduled but not yet published. Five stories were subbed this month, several rejected.

  4. Very nice, Walt and Beth. Yinz continue to inspire. :-)
