Big Pimpin’: KV Taylor’s SCRIPPED
Posted on: July 29th, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 10 Comments

Hey, Katey.  Come here for a second.  Yeah, over here in the corner where no one else can listen in.  No offense or anything, but you’re not doing nearly enough pimping of your new novel.  I know, I know.  It feels weird to post and tweet too much about it.  You don’t want to come […]

A Taste of Mid-World: Graf
Posted on: July 27th, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 17 Comments

Many of you who frequent my site know that  I’ve added yet another hobby to my list of growing obsessions: Home Brewing.  As autumn draws closer, my interests tend to all collide as I determine the best way to inject Halloween and fall into every last minute of my day.  Lucky for me, homebrew was […]

Do You Remember Me?
Posted on: July 21st, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 17 Comments

It has occurred to me the that some of you may not remember who I am. Back when I was a nOOb writer with hardly anything published (actually, now that I think of it, not so different from now)  I used a screen name instead of my real name.  I don’t know why exactly.  Maybe […]

Posted on: July 19th, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 14 Comments

My normally unruly beard has become downright mutinous in the wake of my summer vacation from teaching. He has gained significant traction in the southern territories and threatens to overtake the border from chin to neck.  It won’t be  long before Beard and Chest Hair form an alliance. Precautions have been taken.  I’ve sent in […]

Quietly Waiting
Posted on: July 18th, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 6 Comments

All the work I’ve had accepted is quietly waiting to be published.  The stories I’ve submitted to magazines are quietly waiting to be read.  My novel is quietly waiting to be written.  My homebrew is quietly waiting to be bottled.  And I’m quietly waiting for Autumn. I’m not a big fan of summer, and this, […]

Two Weeks
Posted on: July 11th, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 11 Comments

It’s been two weeks since I’ve made any additions to my novel.  Two weeks of house repairs.  Two weeks of company and holiday barbeques.  Two weeks of my summer gone. But no writing. If you’ve ever been in one of these situations, you know that the longer you go without writing, the harder it is […]

Ask the Professor #1
Posted on: July 7th, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 7 Comments

The Professor enters the air conditioned classroom.  He turns immediately to the white board and writes Writing 666: Q&A.  Those in attendance mutter to each other while sneaking glances at this man who proposes to be a beacon of education, yet looks like he’d be more comfortable at a Grateful Dead concert.  Certainly administration wouldn’t […]
