Twenty unproduced scripts that you can’t discuss… - posted by Don

On the unproduced scripts page we have twenty new scripts up for your reading pleasure. However, you can?t discuss them?

Were this happening to anyone else other than me, this would be laughable and extraordinarily funny. I spent the whole day uploading each and every message on the discussion board only to discover that I had uploaded the wrong backup files. (Well, the backup files would have been ‘right? if this were April 10, 2004.) The correct backup files are being uploaded as I type this. They will continue to be uploading long after I tottle off to bed which should be shortly. I do hope that when I wake up tomorrow morning that I can re-open the discussion board.

A long time ago, I used to call out each of the unproduced scripts I put up, but then there got to be so many that I was unable to give each and every one a mention. I tried, for a bit, to give a few a mention – randomly, however then I was inundated with emails from those writers who I didn?t mention asking why his/her script didn?t get mentioned. That I randomly select a few to mention didn?t seem to be a sufficient answer so I went to simply stating that there are ‘x? number of unproduced scripts up for your reading pleasure and left it at that.

Well, for today, since in a few days both SimplyScripts and I are coming up on our birthdays, (SimplyScripts will be a full eight years old this coming week and I will be a full “x” years old {where ‘x? is a number between 29 and 100), I thought that I?d switch things up and mention a few of the scripts up on the unproduceds scripts page.

Christopher Bate has up A Girl Called Simplicity. Christopher wrote Death Rides the Nine which was later produced. DRtN did appear on SimplyScripts for a while, though the hosting of the script and the later production were not connected. (Jeez, just google Death Rides the Nine if you want to know about the script and movie.)

Mike has up The Odds of Love. TOoL was on the site before, but was taken down when Mike sold the script. Mike has re-submitted it. I?m not sure if the production of TOoL has come to a bad end or if Mike simply wants to rub my face in the fact that he?s sold a script and I haven?t. I do hope it is the former because I am a small, petty man.

And, with that, I’m going to tottle off to bed and read a few more chapters of The Stars My Destination. – Don

NB: Both Mike and Christopher did not sell their respective scripts as a result of being posted to SimplyScripts. However, on rare occasions, scripts on the site are sold as a result of being posted on SimplyScripts. This does not happen often. – Don

Yes, Don, TOoL came to an end, but not necessarily a bad one. It’s what some of us like to call “creative differences”, so it is once again available. I’d be a real TOOL to rub TOoL in your face.

I’m rambling now, aren’t I? Anyway, if anyone’s looking to read a character driven, romantic comedy/drama, give it a look. Also, if your a producer, it can be made on the cheap. I promise. =)
