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.

Oh we simply must institute this policy now.

If Polenth can provide the badgers, I will generously donate the midnight.

That's Zanjan's job now. Except I think she uses a flounder instead of a badger.

Kudos on the Penumbra sale. That makes two W1S1/AWers, doesn't it?

Congrats mhaynes and O'Dandelo on the pubs, and anyone else I might've missed.

Just Polenth and I, far as I know.

BTW I just saw the cover for the politics issue. My story didn't get the Featured slot, but the cover looks awesome anyway.

Wait. I went through that ceremony. That wasn't for W1S1? Uh-oh. What did I join?

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.)

Agreed about the market insight; I'll have to keep that in mind.

And, as Alex said, congrats Lizardmaker!

Congrats, Lizardmaker! I think I'll check Knowonder out. My kids are under ten, and I'd like to write something for them one day. (My son has just discovered Roald Dahl, and I'm ecstatic, because now he will actually read for entertainment.)
