"The Box of Forever"
Posted on: March 29th, 2006 by Anthony Rapino 1 Comment

Well, I just received a rejection for this piece. I’m happy to report that it was a good rejection. The editor said that I have a nice dark tale, but it unfortunately doesn’t fit what they are looking for in terms of content (ie. dark fantasy and surrealism. I have a good feeling about this […]

Or…A couple of things. I have two or three new links to cool blogs that you all should check out. I don’t mean to lead you by the nose or anything, but they are on the sidebar…you know, the right side of the page that I always mention–the one containing many fabulous links. So, for […]

Back in Familiar Territory

Rejection Town. Ever hear of it? I’m one of their renowned citizens. Well, I got another rejection today. Admittedly, I didn’t expect this one to get picked up. It was a short piece that I wrote in a day or two. The premise was loose and it probably could have used some more work, but […]

The Unreachable Itch

The Unreachable Itch. I’ve got it bad. This weekend has been a different kind of hell. Usually I like being home, getting work done, writing, submitting–it’s what I do. But this weekend, something was different. I wrote and edited and read and just couldn’t seem to reach that darned itch. Eventually I reduced myself to […]

Posted on: March 8th, 2006 by Anthony Rapino

I received a 6-day rejection from Tapestry today. It had a note stating that they are currently full on flash fiction (which is what I sent them) and they are now looking for longer pieces. On to the next one.

New Header

I finally decided to rip down the old header (provided by the blog site) and create my own. This was a quick photoshop creation that I made earlier today. I may go back and tinker with it. The text reminds me of the Twilight Zone, which I guess is fitting, considering the name of my […]

Reminder:I have at least three hidden features on this site, two are cartoons that I made, and one is a picture page of my drawings. Think of them as little Easter eggs. Have fun. Just a quick update on works in progress. I am very near completion of “Retired,” which I plan to send out […]
