Week #48 Check-in

The end of Week 48 is here!

How's it been for you? Have the words soared like The Flying Machine, or has The Dragon 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 new books on a writer's shelf. 

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. Working my way sluggishly through a novel manuscript that I'm hoping and praying I'll be able to finish in December because it's so long overdue. It's a fun story and I want to do it justice, which is why I think I've been so hesitant to pursue it. But I'm feeling better about it, so if all goes well I'll have a good month coming up.

    Had a drabble published this week at SpeckLit, and I have a story coming out tomorrow in Electric Spec that I'm excited about. I started plotting a few other stories but mostly I'm working on that longer piece.

    Have a great week everyone! Almost done with 2015!

  2. Nothing new published, a few new rejections and a short story written.

    My NaNoWriMo ground to a halt at around 20,000; life consumed me! I did get the story plotted though and it will be finished perhaps even by the end of the year.

    Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the U.S. Roll on the New Year!

  3. Even though I haven't been checking in here as much, I have been successful at writing and subbing each month. Been focusing on NaNo, and not on all the rejections I've been getting. Sigh. Oh well, on to December! :)

  4. Kept working on the novel project (take 2). I have enough short work out on sub that the churn of sub/reject/sub has become a bit of a blur. I know that I'm getting a lot of stuff out the door, however, so I'm counting it as a win!

    Hope everyone has a great December!
