As has become common for the last few of these -- now that the OWC has grown so large -- a quick request:

Please let the Mods know if you spot inappropriate reviews -- or if another flame war starts brewing on one of these threads.

There are simply too many active and fast-growing threads during these challenges for the Mods to catch everything, so your help with stuff that slips beneath the radar is appreciated.  Thanks.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Thank you Don for posting all of the scripts.  It has held me powerless to get anything else accomplished today...I'm sitting on my butt reading! lol *wink

We may not say it very much but we do appreciate all you do.

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.

Wanna say thanks to Don? Click on all those lovely ads

I think it's better that so many were posted at the same time.... it makes sure that the reads for each script are more equal.

Perhaps this is not the right thread - feel free to remove if so. I'm just curious that this OWC all entries were posted at once.

Is this specific to the Halloween themed OWC - oh, and no voting threads on this one (which I think is a good thing). New innovation? Btw, not a vested interest this time around - just plain ol' curiosity.

Thanks for your hard work Don. This site is one of a kind!

That would be violation of penguin code - penguins and horror don't go togeher. And you have to agree on the code - we all seen penguins, they are far too adorable to go into a horror short.

No penguins. Thanks Don.

Penguins are noted for their lockstep conformity, with one noted exception...
