It’s been a long time…

Posted on: June 17th, 2009 by Anthony Rapino 5 Comments

Hello all of my long lost friends…well, those of you who might still check this long dead blog of an unknown writer.

Over the past year or so, I’ve been working hard on editing my novel, Soundtrack to the End of the World. At last count–if you look at my word meter below–I had around 58,000 words. It’s now closer to 61,000 words. It seems for every page I deleted, I added two.

But finally reaching a point where I think it might actually be publishable, I have started drafting my query letters. I hope to send out a few submission packages soon.

So, what else have I been up to? The short answer is “not much.” It’s been work work work for me. I may start posting here more often again. But if you’d rather not take the chance–oh, I know you missed me–you can follow me on Twitter (my name there is “onipar”), where I post mostly small nuggets of wisdom such as “Two words that should never, ever, go together: canned meat,” and “I’m bored of beef. God needs to invent a newer, tastier animal for me to consume.” Or, you can even catch me over at Facebook.

With so many new avenues for idiocy, it’s a wonder I get any work done at all.

    Glad to see you're back…at long last. I kept popping over to see if you'd returned. I can fully understand the reason for your absence though; many times I've considered taking a time-out from blogging and spending more energy on my novel – but I've not been quite strong willed enough. Good on you for resisting the urge, and good luck with your novel…it seems like you're on a roll! 😀

    Well, while I resisted the urge to post here, I wasn't so lucky with other time-consumers, like movies and video games… :-p

    Glad to see that you're back, writing, and busy. Have you been teaching too? Thanks for stopping by… I've been wondering when you'd reemerge.

    Once again, good luck with the query process – persistence is key!

    Best,
    Jade
