Just going over the votes, and I realized I must have made some pretty good choices of what to read or not.  12 out of the 16 stories I read got votes.

I guess there really is something to having a good title and a good logline means a better chance at a good story.

(For those who don't know, I made my choices of what to read based on my favorite titles and favorite loglines that grabbed my attention.)

I was impressed with a lot of the stories.  Almost all of them I read were at least likable.  Even the one I couldn't follow and had no idea what was going on, I still liked.


You know what really surprised me with this October OWC, though?  Especially with the gothic horror genre theme?...  The lack of vampires.

Usually, vampires crop up in all OWC's, even ones that have no right being there.  Makes me wonder if thinking about ghosts so much made people completely forget about vampires.

In fact, to tell you the truth, I myself was contemplating submitting a gothic story about a vampire notary.  The idea's totally original and I came up with it all myself, don't believe what others say.


Anyway, congrats to everyone for entering and I'll be reading more and more of these over the next couple weeks as the names get revealed.

- Mark

I used to read some of Anne Rice's novels, and they're full of both vampires and ghosts. I would think most of the time one excludes the other in that they're each their own genre, or sub genre. Gothic works well with vamps though.

I think New Orleans, as a setting, is pretty Gothic because of the clash of cultures and the languid pace of things, like a world that rebels against the modern and the rational.

After this OWC I'm thinking of taking every clunker er I mean short Ive done so far and rewrite the heck out of each one of em (God knows they need it lol).

Then maybe package them all into some sort of Anthology feature thing since they all are pretty much linked by the horror/dark fantasy theme. Maybe that will be my first feature, "Stories of the Macabre or "Paranormal Theater" or something.

I avoided Vampires (one of my characters could quite easilly have been one) because their use had reached saturation point for me and I assumed there would also be loads.

My logline was rubbish - its another aspect of writing I need practice with.

I can't help thinking that many have been influenced to vote the Open Casket, following the majority....

It seems as such... I did like it, but I felt 2 others out classed it.  Neither being my own.

In a way, I'm sort of glad there wasn't vampires - although nothing in the rules said you couldn't have them. If there were any, I would be a bit more strict and give less leeway. After submitting and reading 36 sp off Movie Poets Undead challenge, the last thing I would want to read is stories with vampires and ghosts mixed up in the same story, much less zombies and mummies.

I would have liked a Frankenstien-like story though.

While I won't take anything away from that writer, I'm inclined to agree. But that said, the ones I liked more are also getting some votes. So, when we factor in the ballots from the other day, i would say the poll here is fair.

I went back, after seeing Michel's remark, to look at the early reviews on Casket, and they aren't particularly glowing. Also, early on Casket was not getting a lot of reads, probably due to the title and log. I think it rose to the top like cream. And I have no idea who wrote it. It had my vote until the last day, and I read Last Stop, which nudged it out for me. But Casket is solid work, very high quality. I think the vote was ultimately fair. I believed Casket would win as soon as I finished reading it.

Open Casket is easily the best written script of this bunch.  Hands down, nothing comes remotely close, IMO.

I'm wondering why anyone would question the vote or say something like the vote was influenced by the fact that it was receiving more votes.  Doesn't make any sense.

The only influence I've been seeing is Kevin championing his Heavyweight Champion, Last Call/Stop     I bet it picked up 1 or 2 votes based on all the hoopla.

I don't think I even got through all of Last Stop, but it did show potential.

When are the names being revealed?  You guys are gonna be in for a big surprise!!  


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