Use a simple word processor like TextEdit, not a complex one like Appleworks or Micro$oft Word. The more complex word processors sometimes imbed formating and fonts and things into files even when you tell them to save as a txt. You end up with a bunch of random characters at the top and bottom which don't mean anything and screw up your AI script. They may have fixed this in more recent versions of AppleWorks, but just don't bother with it. TextEdit was specifically made to crank out .txt and .rtf files.
Of course, the other option is to not mess with your AI scripts. The built-in ones aren't great, but they're decent, and mucking with them can seriously screw things up if you don't know what you are doing.
"On two occasions, I have been asked (by members of Parliament), 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question." -- Charles Babbage (1791-1871) Inventor of the "Analytical Engine", the first computer.
