April 1, 2006 – Twenty-two new or revised scripts up on the Unproduced Scripts page. And this time, back by popular demand, I’ve included the “gang” name of the script writer so that Discussion Board members can know who really wrote the script.
Eight years ago I set up this site with the sole purpose of selling my action, adventure, sci fi, romance, western, film-noir, comedy, thriller – Space Stallion: The Dark Space Adventure of Sophie the Hybrid Horse Snake.
Over the years I’ve only gotten a couple of comments on my script. Those comments were, “Stinks” and “Crap”. I asked the reviewer if he/she could elaborate on his/her comment. The reply? “It really stinks like crap.”. I was not disheartened and over the years folks sent me links to other scripts on the ‘net. Other aspiring screenwriters asked if they could post their work on my site in the hopes of getting their work noticed. I was happy to oblige. I thought, perhaps, when potential producers saw SS:TDSAoStHHS next to other scripts, SS:TDSAoStHHS would really stand out. I’ve endured e-mails from writers telling me, “Thanks! I sold my script!” and “Hey, just wanted to let you know that I got a screenwriting job! Thanks!” and “My script is being produced!” and “Jesus! What moron wrote SS:TDSAoStHHS?”
You’d think I’d be happy helping someone else succeed. I’m not. I’m angry, bitter and jealous. I hope you all get hives in your nether regions. To the incredibly large number of aspiring screenwriters writing me complaining that no one read their script or reviewed their script or bought their script, I’d like to say, “Join the club! (and I hope you get hives, too).
I’ve removed my script from SimplyScripts.com and, starting tomorrow, I will be redirecting every single link, every single file on SimplyScripts.com to my new site, Simply-for-the-love-of-all-that-is-holy-buy-my-Space-Stallion:- The-Dark-Space-Adventure-of-Sophie-the-Hybrid-Horse-Snake- Script.com.
