About Write1Sub1

"An improvement on NaNoWriMo for serious writers."
- Jonathan Laden, Daily Science Fiction

Here's the challenge, should you choose to accept it:

  • Write and submit a short story or poem every week (or month), starting the first week of January and ending the last week of December.
  • Goal: 52 new submissions in 52 weeks (or 12 in 12 months).
  • You don't have to write and submit the same story within the same week -- although that's what Bradbury did. Often it pays to set a story aside for a while and come back to it.
  • The length of your story can be as short as Twitter fiction (140 characters) or as long as a novelette (15,000 words). Any style, any genre: whatever you write.
  • Every week, we post a "check-in" where you can tell the world about your progress. Share your triumphs and disasters -- we're all in this together.
Ray Bradbury is reported to have finished a story each week, mailed it out to a magazine, then got to work right away on his next story. We're going to spend this year in his shadow.
