About Me

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Write1 Sub 1 Challenge

You know you can write really well don't you?
So why then is getting a story published so darned hard?
Are you up for a challenge starting the first week of January?
No not Nanowromo in a month, but following in the footsteps of the great Ray Bradbury
52 new submissions in 52 weeks!
What advice would YOU give to anyone preparing for such a challenge? Or am I mad to attempt it?

The idea is that more you write the more experienced you get and the more responses you get, some of which will be positive ones.

Write and submit one short story every week, starting the first week of January 2011 and ending the last week of December 2011.

• Goal: 52 new submissions in 52 weeks.

• You don't have to submit the story that you've written that week within the same week although that's what Bradbury did. (Sometimes it’s better to set a story aside for a while and come back to it.)

• The length of your story can be as short as Flash or Microfiction (140 characters - 55 words) or as long as a novelette (15,000 words). Any style, any genre: whatever you want to write.

• Every week there will be a "check-in" post where you can tell everyone about your progress; share your triumphs and disasters (or Tweet them with the #write1sub1 Twitter hashtag).

Up to the challenge? Visit Write1Sub1 to sign up, follow Write1Sub1, add the badge to your blog, and let the world know about the adventure you'll be embarking upon next year!
I'm going to give it a go. How about you?
