The Skinny: Write 1 Sub 1

Two months into Write 1 Sub 1 and I have to say, it is going better than… okay, I won’t jinx myself, but let’s just say, I’ve been writing and subbing more than ever, and it might actually be working.  I’ve even managed to keep up (thought not as much) on my novel writing.

If you haven’t heard of Write 1 Sub 1, you should check it out. It’s a forum for a “Ray Bradbury” writing challenge, and the people who sponsor it are cool in many ways: Milo James Fowler, Simon KewinStephen V. Ramey, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Stephanie M. Lorée.  It’s a great place to meet like-minded writers, and if you like badges, you’re going to love it.

The details for participating are HERE.  You can enter weekly (write 1 story, sub 1 story per week) or monthly.  The participants are all very friendly, supportive, and inspiring.  So what’s your excuse?  What’s the worst that could happen?  Horror writers … don’t answer that.
