Week #45 Check-in

The end of Week 45 is upon us!

How's it been for you? Have the words flowed Quicker than the Eye, or has A Sound of Thunder gotten in the way? Here's your chance to tell everybody about it, whether you're a weekly or monthly (or anything in between) W1S1 participant.

If you've managed to write a story and submit a story, shout it from the rooftops. Yahoo! If you've had something W1S1-related accepted, tell us so we can add you to the Write1Sub1 Hall of Fame. But if stuff 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 coffee or tea in a writer's favorite mug. 

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 everyone!

    Everything is crazy here. I'm bogged down in novel edits with a deadline looming all too soon. I'm continuing work on Poem A Day. I've had a lot of rejections this week but also acceptances.

    Accepted: two poems to a great market and another story to DSF. I can also announce my really big news from a few weeks ago: a story sale to Clockwork Phoenix 5!

    Published: Two poems at Grievous Angel: Riders of the Apocalypse: Death and Hera Herself, at 8'clock Tonight.

    Write on, folks!

  2. Subbed one last week that I'd written over the previous few weeks. It was quite good to get it written as the idea had been nagging me for about a year!

  3. I've had two published this week and last at ) I'm NaNoWriMo writing so that's my 1 for this week (I've just hit 10,000 a bit behind schedule, but who cares?) I subbed one and I really can't remember if I mentioned that I've had my first reprint accepted in the Far Horizons anthology Forever Hungry. (How can I check what I've registered?)

  4. I've written and submitted. Received a rejection from a piece sent out in March. Looks as if you guys have been busy lately.

  5. Finished a piece I started in October . . . but it isn't very good. It's too long and needs a lot of revision. I knew how I wanted it to start but lost some steam at the end.

    Also I got a story accepted at Electric Spec to come out at the end of November! Pretty excited about that! :D
