Quoted from Grandma Bear
I'm getting seriously pissed at reading all these fucking shitty scripts that have taken any seriousness and learning experience and camaraderie out of the OWC. Don't think for a second that I will not hold this against you writers when you are revealed. Thanks a lot!!!!!   >



Quoted from greg
Amen to that. Then stuff like this happens:



Quoted Text
And with that, I stop reading until the names are posted.


And with this, I'm going to out myself so as not look like a complete hypocrite when the names are posted. I wrote Peacemaker and I regret posting it. I suppose my intentions weren't good doing it in the first place however I had no idea things would be this bad and I wish I'd never been a part of it.

I did however write a serious entry. I was going to write a third but didn't have time to make it good. I'll get around to it in the future.

Don't worry James...I won't hold it against you.

It really pisses me off though when people don't take the OWC seriously and write these gosh darn pisstakes.  I'd never even consider such a horrible thing...well...nah, I'd never even consider it!

Ditto. I'll take responsibility for Asian Take Out.

I was keen for this challenge, as the drama genre was way outside my writing comfort zone.
so I started brainstorming, throwing ideas at my wife. I had an idea about a vegan chick who goes on a camping tour and when the guide is injured and they're stranded, has to contemplate eating their horse.
Another was a vegan and carnivore adrift in a life boat with a corpse the only food source.
I didn't do any actual wrting just processed them upstairs.

But as is my wont, my comedy antennae were clicking over, developing a secondary script. That became the priority(as usual) so I thought I'll get that down and maybe do the lifeboat one as well.
But life's business got in the way and i only submitted the funny one (which was Food for Thought - the cannibal one) on the last day. I'll still sort of argue this script had elements of drma in it  - the tribe were facing a conflict. Its just that i had the characters speaking funny.

Oh, and to back my original suggestion of canning the anonymity, lets go for it.

Here is my story.
I was out of town the entire week of the OWC.
On Friday night a couple of hours before the OWC was to close, I was encouraged by some posters to try and write a script.

Thats what I did. I wrote it in 52 minutes. So I named it TAKES TWO.

I know it sucks but I wrote it completly without even rereading it. I submitted it and emailed Don to make sure I even made it in time.

I don't apoligize for it. I simply wanted to see if I could pull off a script in an hour and I did. Horrible formatting, grammer and all.

What shocks me, Is I actually have seen reviews that did see what I was trying to do. And for those of you who thought is was a pisstake, it wasn't.

It was a man with an hour and I wanted to be in.

I haven't read yours yet, but I don't hold the last minute stuff against you. I pretty much always write mine at the last hour.  Mine are always a serious attempt even if not brilliant.

Good to see you guys confessing and especially realizing it went too far. One pisstake like No Meat would be ok, but trying to read all of them when 50% seem like mockery it got very annoying.

Pia,
You can read it but there is not much there. I wanted to be able to take the week and put together a clean script. That just didn't work out. Instead, I was in a border town doing what I am paid to do with no time in the evenings at the hotel I was staying at.

Funny thing happened though. On Friday night, when I got home, it seemed do-able to put my script together no matter the reviews. I have to admit, it was fun.

Despite the poor script, I enjoyed this challange very much.

Good job, Led!

I admit I was one who was egging Shawn on.  Love the fact that you said, "Fuck it!", and just went for it.

Great job!

I'm think that, being that everyone had such a shitty time with the OWC, we should cut back on the number of them we do a year. Skip the summer one (we're almost there, anyway) and just wait for the Halloween one.

Hopefully, people will take it seriously and participants will be SS members and not outsiders.

I disagree Phil. Clearly people like the OWC. Remember how dead it was here before this OWC?

I just think we need to seriously cut down on entries for the quality of comments and scripts.

In fact, I wouldn't mind another one next month. I just hate 40 entries where so many are by none contributors and the *mockery* ones.
