Write1Sub1, ObsessivelyCheckDuotrope625

You've probably all heard of the Write1Sub1 guys, especially as the about-to-be-even-more-productive Aaron Polson is a member. I'm following their blog in Google Reader. And for those who haven't heard of them (you really need to visit twitter more), ninety plus writers have joined and they aim to write and submit a new story every week in 2011. Go them!

A strange fact about this non-participant: To date, I've written five new short stories this year and they're all out the door. Another fact: I'm still not entering play as I'm expecting the novel to take over any day soon (gets down on her knees and prays to her Jack Skellington altar). Another fact: I do hate missing out on all the fun and I'm loving the spirit of these guys.

So the reason for this post--If this was a short story, you'd have given up by now--today's Write1Sub1 blog post is an interview with Wendy S. Delmater, Editor-in-Chief at Abyss & Apex. I thought you all might be interested. Ooh, I wanted to type y'all then. I swear there are stars and stripes running through my bones.

Over and out. Nanu Nanu. Plot possibly lost.

I'm just hanging on for dear life. You are allowed to type "Y'all" if and only if you live below the Mason-Dixon line. That is all.

I refuse to believe that, Aaron. The hanging on for dear life thing that is. I need to geographically shift Liverpool.

It's a great project, very inspiring to meet goals.

Aaron, you dudes is braver than me...also, speaking as a transplanted Southerner, I would like to encourage the usage of "y'all" among the English. Y'all sound so dang funny when you use it...

You closet Write1Sub1er, you.

Cate Gardner said...

It is, Danielle.

I think everyone should say y'all, Josh. :D

Shush, don't tell anyone, Milo.
