Well then, hopefully the non-serious entries are short.

I thought the one with the Doberman was a serious attempt.  And Carnivore City.  These scripts may not be the most polished, but that's no reason to say that the writers didn't take them seriously.

Why don't you guys that have been reading suggest the ones you think are serious, this way some of us that have been saving our reads will know what to read next?

If we didn't have the anonymous factor for the OWC, there wouldn't be a prob. You could pick and choose who to read first. It wouldn't change the quality of the read but it would save time.

I have no deal with the anon issue but it would solve a few probs.

No way...it's o be got to be anon!

Peacemaker is the most serious entry so far!


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Out of the first 15 I've read, these are the entries that I feel are serious:

The Contest
Mythos
(H)eat of Wartime
City of Carnivores
In the Grip of Winter
In the Flesh
A Dangerous Job

Don't feel bad if yours not included, I just haven't got to them yet.

What about Wolves at the Door?  That seems pretty serious and deep...

Huh...you know, this whole anonymous thing was instituted in the past -- when there were only a few of us -- and styles were often recognizable.

With all the complaining about nonmembers and such, perhaps this aspect has outlived its usefulness?

If these entries actually had names on them, I would probably be reading a few.

Question:  Is it time to do away with the anonymity?

Those who deserve to be read would get read -- and you could choose to read something by a "stranger" if you wanted -- and the *ahem* pisstakes would likely cease to be a problem.

Seems to me it might solve a number of the "problems" in one fell swoop...?

[edit:  And suddenly, life is whole lot easier for Don, too.]

Generally anonymous feedback is more honest, but seeing that some comments in this owc are really short and don't offer much as far as helpful comments. More like, yeah, I liked it or, I didn't like this one at all

I'm all in favour of giving non-anonymous a try.

Yup, add Wolves at the Door as well. I just read it, it's a serious attempt.

I will make suggestions tomorrow.

But two off hand are Dumb Animals and A Moment of Your Time

Truthfully, I'm not disappointed. Even the clunkers I'm happy about because at least they joined in and tried.

Strongly recommend Lambshank - more on the comic, but enjoyed the read...

Liked Butcher's Daughter as well; clean, pretty easy to follow.
