Okay...

Politics and religion are usually topics that divide people and threads about either never end well.

Let's stick to the OWC discussion here. If anyone still "needs" to vent about politics or religion, start a new thread in General Chat. Just know that in the past, it has always ended up ugly.

As far as the OWC goes, it seems most people that were going to read, have read, and I would assume voted. I'll out myself as having written Truth Or Dare. I did run out of time to end it properly due to my son's dog Murphy being violently ill for two days during that week. He's okay now, but it was a mess.  Yuck...

You're right.

Politics and religion aren't important for here.  Unless you are writing a story about it, and honestly, I'm shocked at how much reflects in my writing, it has no bearing on anything.

Pia, I enjoyed that story a lot.  But, since you outed yourself, can you answer one burning question.  What was up with the omniscient kid?

Was it your impression to make him like Dr. House on House MD or say a profiler like on Sanctuary (it was a sci-fi show that aired her for (I think) 5 seasons...

If that was your intent, I wish you had taken it further...

It was a very good story.  I really enjoyed it a lot...

Great job.

Dan


Please read my scripts:

I'm interested in reading animation, horror, sci fy, suspense, fantasy, and anything that is good.  I enjoy writing the same.  Looking to team with anyone!

Thanks

Of course anyone can write a story about anything. Politics, religion, taboo stuff. Anything. But, if we need a discussion about those subjects themselves, start a new thread.

As far as my OWC went, my intention was for the kid (can't remember his name right now) to be kind of an evil Damien type. He got his info from snooping around. Like finding a partial wrapper to the pregnancy test kit in the waste basket in the bathroom for example. I thought maybe he could see what was on the guy's phone by seeing it in the reflection in his glasses. Something along those lines. Just didn't have the time to flesh it out properly.  Was probably having a few beers on the last evening too....  

PS: my legs were in Barbados at the time...now stop talking about them!

Hey Pia - good script. As you know, everyone's script is somewhat rushed. This time around I felt that folk had struggled more with this one and that several were rushed through, like mine. Stuck in a travel motel in the middle of nowhere I  wasn't entering a script on Thursday night so I was pleased just to take part.

If we're outing, I didn't write Ready or Not ;-(

I can't believe your entry (Pia) had 'Me' on it. I thought nah, Pia wouldn't put her well known alter-ego as a name. How wrong I was.   Btw, it was one of two 'Recommends' cause despite some fixes needed I really enjoyed the story and thought it'd film well.

P.S. Stop outing yourselves guys... Or else I'll have to stop peeking. I like seeing the surprise list when it comes out.   Oh well.

I've been really busy lately so can't remember who I voted for and who I didn't. Well done, Pia. Truth or Dare is a good effort for this OWC. I can see somebody picking that up.

I won't "out" myself, but I will say that my script had a few Springsteen Easter eggs in it... for those of you who are really into Bruce. Extra points for guessing the correct song.

I outed myself because the guessing has stopped and it's been awhile now. Don's probably busy. Someone told me has a life.  

I'm glad you guys thought the script was okay. Reading reviews can be hard with the OWCs sometimes. Maybe I'll give this a rewrite after all.  

Libby, I forgot I had Me in my sig. It used to be my board name too until my family (husband 25% native American) gave me the name Angry Bear.

Quoted from Reef Dreamer

Agreed. Which is why I don't like "feels rushed" from others or from my own reviewing. I struggled with my entry too- and early on I even had a different game. It was a D&D-ish  Lovecraftian game where the people accidentally conjure up an Old One. It sounded nice but I dropped it by that Monday because it wasn't working for me writing it and had to come up with a different story and game.

Well, Ready or Not was my hands down favorite - can't wait to see who wrote that one.  Along with Tic Tac Toe, Solitaire and notable others.  Heck, I rather enjoyed Lawn Dart, too.    

(And kudos to all who submitted, of course.  But that goes without saying...)

I thought the quality was high overall. My two RECOMMENDS went to Tic Tock Toe and Kill Your Demon. What I liked about KYD was that it actually did send a chill up my spine. I thought to myself while reading, is this how this people that go into places and shoot them up feel? Convinced that they are actually saving the rest of us from something evil. They are doing the right thing. That's what I thought was chilling.

Several other several others made my CONSIDER list. I can't remember all the titles without going to check, but they could definitely be made into RECOMMENDS with a rewrite.

Ready or not was my fav as well - like every script on an OWC it could do with a little extra but I just loved the simple premise. Reminded me of the best of Movie Poet scripts -  short, simple, decent message.

My initial stab at this OWC was a take on the game Battleship, involving a sadistic military man whose son was fired from his job by the man they had kidnapped. They forced him to play an all too real game of Battleship, and instead of using harmless pegs they used something else... Knives, daggers, something. Had a good twist and everything. I wrote one page and scrapped it because I just wasn't feeling it. But I'm gonna come back to that one for sure cuz I think it could be quite a hoot!

Actually, I'm shocked that no one used Battleship. I figured there'd be several.
