Virgewatch: Scott O Moore

Friday, 9:45 am. Mess hall. Scott O approaches me over the bowl of hard boiled eggs. He tells me the story of his virgin writing experience.
"I wrote a three act play about busking."
I think that pretty much explains how bad the play was. The director cut act two. The steering committee spent the afternoon rolling their eyes at him, and they didn't invite him back until three years later (after he had conducted a successful whisper campaign). His second effort was more successful, and has been invited back once a year.
