Week #50 Check-in

The end of Week 50 is upon us!

How's it been for you? Have the words flowed like Dandelion Wine, or has Something Wicked 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 (2011-2014).

(Please note that reports will not immediately appear, as they must be verified/processed by the weekly moderator.) 

While W1S1 continues to encourage all avenues for publication, we want to especially highlight those stories and markets that help to put new eBooks on a writer's eReader. 

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!

    After working frantically on edits for over the past month, I used this week to slow down, work on Christmas stuff, and catch up on other writing work like scheduling blog posts and re-submissions. I'm actually expecting a pretty heavy writing work load over Christmas (imminent deadline!), so this is my time to get little stuff done. I plan more of the same this week... and I need to set up Scrivener for my next novel. Gulp.

    I hope your week well!

  2. So many fun things, Beth!

    A slow but productive week for me--lots of brainstorming and planning, and wrote about 1,000 words to finish a chapter I've left open for two years. I know, I'm embarrassed about it, but proud to finally say it's coming along. My guess is 10-15K left in the novel and its first rough draft is done. Also have to work on two strong stories for contest submissions over Christmas.

    Good luck everyone!

    1. That's awesome news about progress on your chapter, Devin! Sometimes the most mentally rewarding activities are knocking off the 'to-do" items that have been around the longest.

  3. Hey, ya'll! After some time away dealing with health things, I'm back to do W1S1 for 2016! Been writing off and on, but this time I'm looking to get the ball really rolling.

    See you on Twitter!

  4. Hi everyone! I'm still pushing through on my novel. While it's not as far along as I'd like, I do enjoy the overall story. It's definitely something I'd want to read if I saw it in the stacks. Now I have to buckle down and make sure it delivers.

    Have a great week!
