Oh ok. It's a pity people are doing that, do they not know the wily regulars of SS are gonna be wise to it. (I guess they pray on goons like me) I didn't submit anything but I have enjoyed what I've read so far.

Nevermind.  There are a couple convos going on and I mixed yours up, thinking you were saying he didn't read anything.

Yep, a lot of animosity banging around here at the moment. I've never seen the boards so passionate. I think I'm gonna write a script chronicling the fall of SS due to the internal strife caused by the OWC. All out cyberlogical verbal warfare, how do you feel about being played by Fisher Stevens

I think he'd love to play such a dynamic character, and would get GreeneStreet to fund the project 100% to do so.

Sweet as, we're thinking on our feet here. Just give some time to knock up an overlong, unworkable, self indulgent, badly formatted 140 page script with gratuitous ass, breast and inexplicable car chase sequences and we're good to go...Oh and you can handle the stimulating task of script editor. Think of it as a test, enjoy

There is no winner.  This is a challenge. Everyone that submits a script wins.

I totally appreciate the OWC events we have.  I feel bad, after the fact that I didn't have the time to write anything within the confines of the time frame.

I think whether you write a submission or you read the submissions...both are doing their part.  

I do believe that by picking out those that wrote a piece, yet haven't reviewed is a bit of a "stinker" position to hold.  

It builds anamosity on the board and divides this happy family of writers on the SS.

A lot of what has been going on of late reminds me of a small town with nothing much to do and too much time on their hands so they resort to feeding on each other.

We have a tremendous resource and community here and whether we like it or not we need to keep our minds open to the differences in the thought, process and writing style  it brings to the table - the lessons it offers each and everyone of us...no matter how we contribute.

I'm certainly thankful to have found this site and I can honestly say I have learned a lot that I couldn't have gotten anywhere but here with this scenario of participation.

~m~

P.S.  No one ever responds when I write one of my "mommy scolding" pieces   *wink* You're welcome to support or rebuff anytime.

I love words and the fact that when the page is blank...there's nothing there until words are formulated in my brain. Those thoughts...rushing through my viens and out my finger tips, find "life" on the page.  

When people and places come to life...that to me is exciting.

However, I think that's in tune with the boards. It's give to get here. Give reviews, get reviews.  Someone who isn't doing that - whether it's the OWC or not - is always pointed out.

From what I understand this meltdown happens every spring, and I can remember at least one other spring when it did.  I wouldn't worry too much about it - we're all creative people here and we can get a bit emotional at times - but I think underneath it all we're all the right sort.

He probably meant "who gets the iScript"?  


No doubt, it'll be "Edmund".

My bad, I thought there was an official OWC "winner" at the end of each contest.


Secondly, I pretty much back up every MBCgirl has just said, this is a wonderful site and community.  Its our duty, both for ourselves and everyone participating to keep it that way.

That sounds like a great idea for a film...

Holocaust in Hicksville, pop 376 375.

The inhabitants of a boring little dump in Indiana wake up one July 4th and realise they are bored witless. With nothing else to do they begin eating each other and before long the whole town is in on the act. Somebody is destined to remain the last one standing, the only question is who.
