And they just keep on coming…
Posted on: September 25th, 2005 by Anthony Rapino

The rejections that is. I received another one today for a short literary story I wrote last winter. Oddly enough, that particular story didn’t have any horror elements. It was straight literary. Did that have anything to do with the rejection? Probably not. I set my sights high for this story and sent it to […]

A Hot Steaming Pile of Rejections
Posted on: September 20th, 2005 by Anthony Rapino

That is what my writing has produced. Today I received yet another rejection from a horror mag. Honestly, I wasn’t surprised. The piece I had sent them marked the last of the stories I wrote before my “literary awakening.” What is this literary awakening I speak of, you ask? Well, that’s for another time. On […]

Horror on the brain

How much writing did I get done this weekend you ask? Well, if you don’t count the many essays for grad school, which I don’t, then nada. I’m not proud. I did bake an apple pie today. You might not believe it, but baking an apple pie actually helps me write. Let me explain– Apple […]

The beat goes on

Well, with the weekend comes lots of writing (I hope). I am still working on “The Coffee Can,” which still doesn’t have a suitable title. I have had minor breakthroughs with the plot of this story, but it seems to lack some fundamental element. I dunno, I guess I’ll catch it in editing. I finally […]

What can I say about Man with the Screaming Brain? Well, I guess I should start by saying I didn’t watch the entire movie. But it wasn’t because it was bad, it was actually really good (if you’re into ‘B’ movies the like of Evil Dead), I was just crashing from too much coffee and […]

The Coffee Can
Posted on: September 11th, 2005 by Anthony Rapino

Despite CONSTANT familial interruptions (for example, my dad is currently in my room tearing out insulation from my ceiling), a butt-load of school work, and a wandering attention, I managed to start work on a new short story tentatively entitled, “The Coffee Can.” I am definitely going to change the title, but I needed to […]
