Write 1 Sub 1 Novel Style!

Are you familiar with a little website called "Absolute Write"? Are you also familiar with a little project called Write 1 Sub 1, wherein participants write a short and sub a short, within a specified time period? (I'm not too familiar with it, I don't write short stories, they are the bane of my existence.) Well, now there is one for novels!!!

Write One Sub One Novel Challenge

The challenge differs by person, so do not think that you are required to "Write 1 and Sub 1" within someone else's time period - you choose how long you will take to write and sub a novel and/or novels. Izz, your Rejectioneer and AW Moderator is watching over us like little chicks. There will be check in threads, advice I'm sure, and since it's AW, lots of encouragement and support.

But don't take my word for it. Click that link above and go check it out. Looks like the official "start" date is November 1st. But remember, you set your own time frame. And after all, it is NaNo. It's not like a bunch of writers don't want to start something on November 1st. Are you telling me you're taking the silly NaNo approach "Ahm jus' writin' a dummas novel that ain't gonna go no whar!" *said with flailing arms and a little drool for emphasis*. Come on! Write that novel! Polish that novel! Sub that novel! Hmm... cheers like that are probably why writers don't have cheerleaders....


  1. I've been looking at both the short story and the novel Write1Sub1, but I'll still be doing NaNo. I need to break the habit of writing 500 words a day. It's too easy to just turn off when that's done.

  2. Join us, Kay! Join us! one of us! one of us! ONE OF US! :)

  3. Ooo, this scares me a bit. You mean they actually expect me to make my stuff worthy for other eyes to see and then try to convince someone to work with me to get it published? That's a lot of pressure.
    I'm so in, maybe!

  4. Yes! I expect a lot of you because I know you can do it! :)

  5. Hi, I'm new to your blog - found you on the Novel challenge thread. I'll be joining the W1S1 Novel Challenge, so see ya around the thread.

  6. Jennifer! Greetings! Thank you stopping by, and best of luck. I will definitely be blogging some more about W1S1. Really excited!
