[TxMt] Quicksilver action adding invisible characters

I started using the GTDAlt bundle and I wrote a Quicksilver action in  
applescript to append text to my inbox.txt. I know I can just use  
Quicksilver's append text but I wanted to write something custom. The  
problem is it is adding invisible characters between every letter.  
Any ideas why?

Here's my script:

using terms from application "Quicksilver"
	on process text theText
		set this_file to (((path to desktop folder) as text) & "GTD:" &  
		my write_to_file(theText, this_file, true)
	end process text
end using terms from

on write_to_file(theText, target_file, append_data)
		set the target_file to the target_file as text
		set the open_target_file to ¬
			open for access file target_file with write permission
		if append_data is false then ¬
			set eof of the open_target_file to 0
		write theText to the open_target_file starting at eof
		close access the open_target_file
		return true
	on error
			close access file target_file
		end try
		return false
	end try
end write_to_file

Warmest regards,
