Week #47 Check-in

The end of Week 47 is upon us!

How's it been for you? Have the words been hotter than Fahrenheit 451, or has The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms 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 protein-rich snacks in a writer's fridge. 

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!

    It's been a ridiculously busy week here. I turned in my novel edits (yay!) and had my editor accept the changes (yay!), so I have thrown myself into the re-submissions and short story edits I have ignored for the past month.

    W: Still doing Poem-A-Day. Heavy edits on two other stories. I foresee more intense edits in the week to come.

    S: Lots of re-submissions of newer stories and reprints. I'm still way behind on my poetry submissions and that might be an issue for a while more.

  2. Congrats on turning in your novel edits, Beth! So exciting!

    My week has been mostly re-reading/editing a novel I wrote but never finished a while ago. Trying to channel the NaNo energy to accomplish this--working okay, but the story is kind of intimidating, as funny as that sounds. Hopefully I can finish it in about 10K-15K more words.

    Also, submitted story edits for a publication coming out in Electric Spec at the end of the month, and subbed ten 100-word stories to SpeckLit. A good week! Hoping for some Thanksgiving work to come through. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  3. Busy month, but if I hadn’t been so busy I’d’ve been more productive.

    Mulberry Fork Review accepted “Paying the Devil,” a literary short story, for publication in December 2015—a two-day turnaround on this acceptance!.
