I've played around with this a bit, and the short answer is that what 
you are trying is nonfunctional at this time. Apparently you do not have 
traceback activated, since I get repeated messages when various things fail.

It seems that this will work with the initial attempt, but subsequently 
it behaves as if Scribus is not "aware" of changes. I tried using 
scribus.docChanged(), scribus.saveDoc(), but these did not help. As 
indicated by Craig Bradney, Scripter is not actively being developed or 
fixed at the moment due to plans for redoing it completely.

About all you can do is search for workarounds that are functioning 
properly. It doesn't hurt to keep learning more about Scribus 
functionality separate from Scripter. Append Text is an option in the 
Context Menu, and applying styles is quite easy. There are also import 
capabilities with formatted text from OO.org, and HTML.
