Week #44 and October Check-In

It's the end of Week 44 and the end of Month 10!

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. Wrote 2 stories and submitted two stories this month, all while juggling a grad school interview . . . and I got in! So exciting news on that front, and until school starts I'll be writing feverishly (probably will have to cut back my word count substantially once classes begin, but that's okay). I had two 100-word stories published this month and have two more coming out.

    Halfway through another, longer piece, and I have some plans to revisit an almost-finished novel I put on the back burner some time ago. If I'm really really lucky, I can pick it up where I left off. But November is a month for writing novels, right?

  2. EDITING. So much editing as I polish this novel for my editor. I have over a thousand tracked changes at this point.

    Since it's November, I'm doing the Poem-A-Day Challenge, too. Today's is done. 29 to go!
