As has been requested (endlessly) EK's Star Log is returning to the internet. You can still read the original archive here... https://eelkat.wordpress.com
The reason you couldn't find it is because I set it to private un-index mode, meaning it no longer shows up in Google search results and can only be accessed by a direct link.
Meaning, if you didn't have the url for it, no amount of searching for it would tell you how to find it. Anyone who had the url could still access it though.
I had set it to private September 23, 2013, intending to move each page here to EelKat.com... however, November 14, 2013, after only moving about 30 pages, I was beaten up and left paralyzed for 5 months, then spent 18 months relearning to walk. I am still crippled and have limited mobility.
Below is one of the blog posts that originally appeared on EK's Star Log. The original articles are still online but no longer indexed in Google. Links to the original article, are included with this post, as is the original posting date. Clicking the links will take you to the original site, where you can see the old Space Dock 13 website still online. Space Dock 13 as it looked when hosted on WordPress from 2003 to 2013.
SCRIPT FRENZY 2010: I WON!
Info on what I’ve done so far…
& Psycho Stalker Attacks
SCRIPT FRENZY: I WON! Info on what I’ve done so far…
Posted on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 | Comments Off
Well, spent the night, putting the door back on the barn. Guess who showed up last night and ripped it off it’s nails? Yep, you guessed it – the freaking stupid ass psycho-bitch vandal strikes again! Damn – that door is nearing on 200 years old now – it was built in the 1840’s, it’s the original door to the barn. Stupid vandals, cracked the wood and split it down top to bottom. I asked her why she did it. She said because the door was locked and I wouldn’t give her the key.
I’m wondering where the logic is here. Why does the psycho bitch vandal who threatens to kill my pets, need a key to my barn? But than again, when you are dealing with a violent paranoid schizophrenic off her meds I suppose you have to just throw logic out the window right?
Speaking of windows – she’d smashed 3 of them off the barn in the past 7 months. I’m so sick of putting in new windows every few weeks, and now the door?
So, that set me back on my writing time again, but at least I’m good with carpentry (have to be with freaks like this smashing things every week) so the door is fixed, and all the cats are safe again, except for Kit-Kit of course who is now missing 17 days. So, with the door fixed, and the animals safe from bear, fox, and coyotes again, I got back to my writing for the contest.
OMG! I won! I just reached 105 pages! That puts me over the 100 page requirement! After the roaring start I had, I thought I’d be here 10 days ago, but than vandals arrived in real life and a week of police and real life hectic put Script Frenzy to a screeching halt week 2.
I wrote like hell the last 3 days to catch up, and before I knew it I was caught up and AHEAD!
OMG! I just hit 100 pages!
And I’ve still got a week to go! And my plot is doing all sorts of freaky things, so who knows how many pages I’ve got left to write – I may have to turn this into a series! I am now officially in the liege of the overachievers group – let’s see how far I go before the 30th.
I was so far behind 3 days ago – that I just sat down and wrote straight through night and day – and now, 3 days later – I’m *shock-gasp* AHEAD! WOW! I like wrote the whole thing in 3 days, out of panic that I wouldn’t make it because I was so far behind! LOL!
Yep. I’m here. I’m ahead, and I’ve got more scripts than I can count flying all over the place. (I write long hand during the day, because I stay outside with the cats and chickens in the remains of my destroyed garden, while guarding the remains of my vandalized car from the thieves who made an attempt at stealing it last week. And while looking for the missing cat that is now 17 days missing, disappearing the day after these vandals threatened to kill my cats. Than at night I retype it all up on my computer in Celtx, and than convert it to PDF and send it to Script Frenzy for validating – it’s a lot of work getting these scripts written up, and a lot of time.)
I haven’t counted my scripts, so I have no idea how many I’m writing. Each one varies from 10 – 20 pages long, as I’m writing shorts. Let’s see if I can remember them all:
- The Pearl Necklace (dark fantasy) – a ballet
- Emmett (horror) – a play
- Jack and Jill’s Big Production (satire) – a play
- It Came From The Kitchen A Tale of Rancid Yak Butter (sci-fi) – a play
- Over the Edge (horror) – a play
- The Pearl Necklace (dark fantasy) – a play
- The Alien Bible – Sodom and Gomorrah (sci-fi) – a play
- The Alien Bible – Ananias and Sapphira (sci-fi) – a play
- A Garden Destroyed (vignette) – a play
- XavyBlue and The Far Darrig (dark fantasy) – a play
- SHIVER (horror) – a play
Planned but not started yet:
- The Alien Bible – Danial (sci-fi) – a play
- The Alien Bible – The Birth of Christ (sci-fi) – a play
- The Alien Bible – Golgotha (sci-fi) – a play
- The Juniper Tree (horror) – a play
- The Tower of Wives (a twisted retelling of Rapunzel)– a play
- The Castle of Blood (horror) – a play
- The House (horror in the style of Ju-On/The Grudge)– a play
- InuGami (horror) – a play
- The Hand (horror) – a play
And in spite of the vandals and everything else: Well, I’ve attended every meeting and…so far I’m the only one whose shown up to any of them.
Frustrating as hell, having to juggle the meetings around the vandals, and the fact that the vandals started online stalking and harassing my online friends, has not helped them want to attend the meetings any. Stupid idiot offline vandals turned online stalkers.
SICK! SICK! SICK! SICK! people!
It was bad enough them harassing me, but now they are harassing my friends too, and got the local Script Frenzy writers scared to attend the meetings. These stalker/vandals are just plain sick.
There’s several people signed up, and there are 6 of them who regularly they’ll message me and say “I’ll be there sure thing tomorrow, can’t wait to meet every one.”, than next day, they say “Sorry, I forgot” or “Sorry I changed my mind” or “Sorry something came up.” Every single meeting every single week, and I’ve got it set up for 2 meetings a week, at times, places, and dates, THEY picked out!
Well, least wise most of the meetings are at a restaurant that is only walking distance for me, and it’s a place I’d be going to go to every week anyways, so it’s not like it’s a total loss, seeing how I get a good meal out of it and I usually get 4 or 5 pages written while I’m there, but still, I wish, just once some one who says they are coming to the meeting would actually, you know, not lie to me and actually come!
I wouldn’t mind them not coming so much, if it wasn’t for the fact that the night before they message me saying they’ll be there!
I mean, why tell me you are coming if you are not going to come? Well, yeah, I can understand, being all hyped up and ready to go to a meeting and than get some stupid ass threat from some stupid ass stalker vandal, and than being too scared to go to the meeting. Stupid vandals-stalkers.
I’m going to agree with her father-in-law who calls her “The Religion Crazed Jealousy Bitch that tries to stop every one from having a life because she doesn’t have one of her own.”
He’s right – that is an absolutely perfect description of her: A Religion Crazed Jealously Bitch, who can’t let any one be happy or do anything, because she has to have full and total control of every one and every thing and because she doesn’t have a life worth living she doesn’t want any one else to have one either.
I just wish these creeps would get out of my life and out of my friends’ lives and stop making a mess of everything.
NANOWRIMO & SCRIPT FRENZY WRITER’S MEETING INFO:

Meeting are held, same time, same place every year.Here is a listing of the Write-In dates, times, and locations. These are the same as they were last year, and are the same as we have used for NaNoWriMo for over 5 years, so these dates/locations are pretty steady and not likely to change much.

FAQs & OTHER INFO About OLL Writer's Contest Meetings:
What is the difference between a Meet-Up and a Write-In?
A social gathering where writers can sit back, relax, and talk about writing, life, the universe, and everything. Usually held at a cafe, coffee shop or fast food joint, where we can eat and write while we talk.
Like a Meet-Up, only every one is quietly typing at their laptops or scribbling on paper pads, furiously writing as many pages as possible.
Are these Meet-Ups or Write-Ins?
Both. Every one comes together and spends the day chatting and/or writing.
What are Impromptu Meetings?
A spur of the moment meeting, that was not planned ahead.
These can be any place, any time, through out the year. Any member can announce them. All you got to do is, post here and say:
"I'm going to be at ____ at _____ o'clock today/tomorrow/next Friday. I'll be getting some writing done while I'm there. You guys are welcomed to come join me."
Please be sure to include the day, place, and time.Impromptu Meetings are often just the person who made the announcement, which is okay. A meeting of one, can still be fun...I do it several times a week! Sometimes another person will show up to join you (usually me). If you are lucky 2 or 3 other people may join you, as well, though it's not so common. If I'm not doing something else on that day, I make an effort to try to show up at all the Impromptu Meetings announced by members.
Where can we hold Impromptu Meetings?
Any place really. At a public library is a common choice. Panera, MacDonald's, Starbucks, SubWay, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Wendy's and other such places are good options if you want to eat and write at the same time. In your living room at your house if you want. I know of a couple of members who get on the Amtrak Downeaster and spend the day on the train writing from Portland to Boston.
Places we have had Impromptu Meetings in the past, that I have personally attended, have included the following:
- ```Old Orchard Beach Libby Library
- ```Saco Dyer Library
- ```Biddeford McArther Library
- ```Portland Downtown Library
- ```Portland Burbank Library
- ```Wells Library
- ```Food Court at the Maine Mall
- ```South Portland Starbucks at Target
- ```Panera in Westbrook
- ```Panera in Biddeford
- ```Pizza by Michael in Saco
- ```MacDonald's in: Saco, Biddeford, Scarborough, Sanford
- ```Burger King in: Saco, Biddeford
- ```SubWay in: Old Orchard Beach, South Portland, Kennebunk, Biddeford
- ```Dairy Queen in Biddeford
As you can see from the list, I do travel across quite a big distance to make an effort to meet with my fellow writers during Script Frenzy and NaNoWriMo!
A Note About In-Home Meetings:
Personally I prefer meetings in public places as opposed to in people's homes, just you know, safer. So I do not recommend having Write-Ins at your home, and NEVER-EVER-EVER post your home address or phone number on a public forum! Remember - we want you to be safe, so only list Impromptu Meeting Announcements for public locations where there will be lots of people around!
If you want to hold meetings in your own home, send private messages ONLY to those people whom you know personally (never to strangers).
And yes, you are more than welcomed to gather up your friends and have your own personal Write-Ins at home with no need to get permission from us or post an announcement!
