Write 1/Sub 1 check in: week 48 the one with the Thanksgiving rejection

Week 48! Short on writing this week. I saw a call for dark Christmas flash fiction (250 words max word count) and didn’t think much of it–until I sat down to write.

Then, it just happened. And yeah, I thought it was dark when I wrote it, but now I’m not really sure what it is. I’ll let it compost for a bit and decide later.

I also worked on shaping up some of my longer short stories for submission, which is where I spent most of my writing time this week.

Also, this week: the epic Thanksgiving rejection, which really only made me laugh, especially since I sold a poem. Yes! A poem. Breakfast in the Desert will appear at Every Day Poets in a month or two. Plus, A Measure of Sorrow is up at Luna Station Quarterly today.

Not a bad way to start December.


  • The Price of Comfort and Joy ~ 250 words


  • Doreen’s Muse


  • The Perfect Canvas
  • What Little Remains


  • Breakfast in the Desert ~ poetry!

  1. I can’t believe we’re starting Month 12 of W1S1 2013. It’s been such a wonderful journey, and reading your progress and your stories has been one of the most wonderful parts of it. Congratulations on another incredible story finding a home and readers! ♥

    • Oh, Thanks, Von! It has been an amazing year. I want to do some blog posts about what I’ve learned this year from doing write 1/sub 1. I hope I can find a pocket of time during the holidays to do that.
