NaNo WriMo Eve
Posted on: October 31st, 2005 by Anthony Rapino

Yes, it is Halloween, and I am very excited. Yet there is something else occurring at midnight tonight, other than awakening ghosts and goblins. It is NaNo WriMo eve, and all participants start writing their novels tonight at midnight. With everything else I should be doing, staying up late to write is probably the last, […]

I added a couple new links on the side bar. You should check these writers out. If you go to Shaun Jeffrey’s webpage (from his blog page), he has a bunch of his short stories to read. Cool stuff. Check it out. -oni

I know I said I would give periodic updates of the baking process, but I got sidetracked. Anyway, here is the finished pie. Okay. I’m going to go eat it now. -oni

Pumpkin guts
Posted on: October 22nd, 2005 by Anthony Rapino

I know I promised that I would only post writing related subjects here, but I can’t seem to separate Halloween from Horror writing, no matter how hard I try. Anyway, I wanted to post a couple pictures of my progress, from start to finish, of my homemade pumpkin pie. I made a few blunders, and […]

Gi-normous Pumpkin

I came across this visual story while searching for different pumpkin recipes. I laughed my a** off and thought I’d post a link to it for others to enjoy. So close to Halloween, pumpkins, horror movies, and candy is about all I ever think about. enjoy -oni

"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
Posted on: October 19th, 2005 by Anthony Rapino

I have just finished a literary analysis of Washington Irving’s, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Well, not entirely, I should be editing it and writing the works cited page. It was a nice paper to work on so close to Halloween. But, the real reason I am posting is to let everyone know that I […]

The long hard road.

Long time no blog. My internet connection has been on the fritz the past few days. Oddly enough, I have gotten ten times the work done during those few days…strange. Well, though I have many other school projects on the table, I am still chock-full of literary specters, and they won’t leave me alone. One […]

They say bad things come in three. Well, I just got my third rejection letter of my last batch–so that’s that. This last rejection was expected because I sent a horror story to a sci-fi/fantasy magazine. I was having trouble finding a horror magazine that would accept the long word count of the story, so […]

Everywhere I look there is Halloween candy, pumpkins, and apple related foods. And I love it. I tell ya, is there any better inspiration for a horror writer than the month of October? I think not. Despite being exiled from my work space, having tons of grad work, regular work, and other distractions, I still […]
