Yeah, Ryan, when you right click on the script and go into document properties, it shows up.  You have to erase all the info inside there once you convert it to a PDF.

Yeah...I don't see anything titled "Principles".

Where the Hell is it?

OK everyone, I'm going to come clean here.  Wolves at the Door is mine.

Sorry to mess around, but I just couldn't help myself.  This is definitely a pisstake, and a great example of exactly how not to write a script.  I tried to break every rule in the book and then some.

The big blocks of text and dialogue, the crazy descriptions, the goofy asides, the zany, make no sense plot, the over the top and meaningless V.O. by Christopher Lee, and of course the dialogue, capped by including "etc., etc.".

Hope some of you at least got a laugh...I know I sure did.  Also hope some of you weren't sure whether or not it was a serious effort (sorry Coding and Sandra!).

I have to say that I've been literally laughing my as off ever since I started writing this.  I had a dinner party last weekend and we were doing a little partying, if you know what I mean...I printed out this script, and then cut slices, holes, and the like in every page, and let my guests have a read.  Their first reaction was, "Why the Hell is it all cut up?".  I told them that I wanted it to look as bad as possible, just to get them in the proper state of mind.  They were giggling wildly the rest of the night, and it turned out to be quite hilarious for all of us.

My apologies again.  I hope no one holds it against me.  It was my first pisstake I ever wrote. You won't be seeing anymore of these from me in the future.

Thanks for all the reads and comments.  Some of them were very funny.

I had a feeling...

I was fairly certain you wrote Cannibals, as you seemed to be the only one who liked it.  I had a sneaking suspicion Wolves was yours, but that black blob of revenge script last owc was so bad, I couldn't be sure if this was the same author.  Well, good job on some bad, bad writing.  Etcetera!

I have now read them all. As I said on FB, this to me was the worst OWC ever. I hope the next one will be better.

Without looking at all the entries and only going by which ones stuck in my memory the most, I would say that Dumb Animals was my favorite.  There were other good ones, but that one stayed with me.

Why would this one be the worst one?  Did too many people not take it seriously?  Was the genre/theme too easy or too hard or just too uninteresting?

What went wrong?

I wouldn't say it was "the worst one"...I'd just say it was very different.

I for one, had a frickin' blast with it.

The theme/genre, to me, was very uninteresting and VERY confining in its scope.  It pretty much mandated a bunch of talking head scripts, and that's pretty much what it delivered.  You know?
