Izz said a very friendly hello to my first post in the introductory thread. I think one of the good things about W1S1, is that it makes submitting a normal part of writing, regardless of R's or A's.
Read books by AWers!
Anyway, I have braggage! Knowonder! bought my kids' twisted fairy story, "Jessica Doubt." (Extra-nice: They recently bumped their pay rate way up, and they pay on acceptance, not publication. They use a story a day, so if you can write for kids up to age 10, definitely submit to them.)
