Repost: Wedding

I promised the fans on the NBC boards that I would do a special storyline. Here it is. It's called The Wedding. Fans of Tony and Anna will particularly enjoy it. It was going to be in two parts; however that has changed. The storyline is taking longer than expected because I'm putting more detail into it and frankly I've been working on other projects.

I've really enjoyed writing the script and bringing back the good, old Days. It is just very sad that the current writers can't do the same. Sex is not romance. Just because a man beds her, it doesn't mean he loves her, which is what Days has become. If I had been given the opportunity, I would have taken Days back to the basics. There wouldn't be the big debate over which man Sami would chose. Eventually I would bring her and Lucas back together, but not until after they had work through their own issues. They both would have been given plots of their own. Sami would have gone back to school to get her high school diploma and on to college. She would have proven that just because you drop out of school to have a child, it doesn't mean that you can't go back. Lucas would have become involved first with helping the Wounded Warriors, before taking over the Horton Foundation. Moving in with Alice would have set them on the path to becoming the new Alice and Tom. A woman from Stefano's past would have not only given him a new love interest, but she would have been an equal partner in crime. EJ and Ava would have become involved with the corruption in the horse industry; they never would be truly good guys, but they also wouldn't be the evil couple in town. Steve and Max would continue to help find missing children, including the granddaughter when her abusive father kidnaps her. Roman and Alyssa would slowly fall in love. There would be the murders that happened John and Marlena's house would be investigated and solved. I would have brought back old friends and new characters who would have been slowly developed. Since there was no Trent in my universe, there would be no Melanie. Without either, Nick would still be on the show. I would have paired him with Eugene to work on the new energy source.

You don't have to break couples up to keep them interesting. In writing 101, you learn that there four traditional conflict themes to both short stories and novels, however I have added a fifth.

Man against himself
Man against man
Man against nature
Man against God or spirituality
Man against Fate or Karma

If a writer is creative, it is easy to ways to keep couples together and interesting at the same time.

Days could have and should have so much more to offer. It's too bad that it won't be given the opportunity that Betty and Ken Corday gave it. Soaps aren't loosing fan; they are suffering from stagnation and network executives' greed.

There has to be a soap or drama out there who is looking for a creative writer. Thank you for your support and the courage to keep trying to achieve my dream.

A special posting for those who love the vets. It would have eventually turned into a murder mystery involving all six characters.

This is what I previously posted on the NBC Days boards not all of the posting are in the current proper format. However the posts at the bottom are in the format that I will be submitting to other soaps in hope of getting a writing gig.

Here's the deal. I am cleaning up and formatting the script that I have already posted into the correct format. I will be using it as resume material to get a writing gig on one of the other soaps. Although much of it will be familiar who have been keeping up, there have been a reshuffling of the scenes as well as some tweaking. Originally, I put little effort into the scrip, especially in the beginning. This better reflects me as a professional writer. However, since the program I am using doesn't have a spell check, there may still be some typos. If you see any, please let me know in the comments section. Thanks.

"In desperate times, desperate measures are sometimes the worst things to resort to. What Guiding Light became was not a soap opera.

Every time he opens his mouth, something stupid comes out.''Done without any homage to the creator of the show'',well isn't that the pot calling the kettle black.This is all coming from a man who has turned his parents dream into a laughing stock and hired a woman who couldn't write a greating card if her life depended on it.Do me/us a favor Corday and SHUT UP.

Is he serious with this?! What the hell does this man know about what a soap opera is anyway?! I can't believe he actually has the cajones to say this. Mr. Corday should very much be ashamed of himself.

samanthawellsdim...


Oh wow! Did he really say that! Uhh...I wouldn't be talking like that Corday, DAYS isn't exactly Y & R! And is NOTHING like DAYS is supposed to be and what the creators (your parents) of DAYS had in mind for DAYS, what they created for DAYS. And DAYS is nothing like it used to be and what it was known for and legendarily known for throughout the soap world. That's been gone and destroyed a very long time ago.

I totally agree with what you said Hartleyfan. That was a bit much and totally un-neccessary to say. And a bunch of those actors, crew, and production have lost their jobs, their show...and you know DAYS isn't exactly top-of-the-notch-safe-from-cancellation! And the way the show is running and written nowadays and the fact that DAYS has tarnished and trashed its "Glory & Golden Days" due to writers doing recycled storylines, getting rid of SOME of their biggest vets [some of the vets are still there and being featured like: Ali Sweeney, Kristian A., Peter R., Joe M., Josh T., John A. Peggy M...and so forth, etc.!], writers who don't know DAYS, don't know the history of the show or what it is about, don't know the characters or their histories, and just only focused on angering fans, instead of pleasing them, and just focused on one character and actor only and all the time now, and OVERLY-DRAWN out stories that run waaayy too long with build that leads to nothing, nowhere, and to no proper pay-offs...NBC has been just itching to cancel DAYS! I'm sure NBC is sick of DAYS and their bull and trouble they've been causing and is just sick of dealing with it altogether...and are just inches away from cancelling it, if they're not careful!

I wouldn't be so quick to speak like that and so cocky like that! DAYS isn't exactly #1, isn't Y & R, isn't what it used to be, isn't blowing it out of the water, isn't the best soap show written or produced, and definitely isn't the best written or produced show or safest from cancellation show on television period. Might not need to be so cocky and rude when speaking like that about cancelled shows and such, in a genera that is generally DYING altogether and is getting much worst than getting better and is losing fans by the masses! Wouldn't be so quick to just speak like that so harshly and rudely DAYS. Whether is true or not...still a bit harsh and rude, for a genera that DAYS is in as well, and is also on that cancellation list and has been many times! And has even lost money/budgets and important characters and actors because DAYS is struggling! DAYS...you can't be so quick to talk like that, you're not exactly Y & R or Grey's Anatomy or Academy Award material or shows or something in writing, production, talent, storytelling, or ratings! Might not want to speak so quickly, so harshly, and so cruel and mean about...yet another show that was just canceled in your exact genera!

I don't like Ken he all talk no action and this proves my point.. saying that GL isn't a soap? well apparently he never watched DOOL over again.. because if GL isn't a soap.. than AMC,OLTL,GH,BB,YR,ATWT,and DOOL aren't soaps if GL isn't a soap! I like GL heck alot better than I do right now with DOOL!

Gotta LOVE Jamey from Daytime Confidential,here is his thoughts on what Corday said.


Perhaps the most well-informed, prolific, skilled— golfer in daytime, Days of Our Lives executive producer Ken Corday speaks out to Soap Opera Digest about CBS basically signaling the end of broadcast television by cancelling Guiding Light.

"In desperate times, desperate measures are sometimes the worst things to resort to. What GUIDING LIGHT became was not a soap opera. It smacked of ESPN or the evening news and done without any homage to the creator of the show. It wasn't because of one inept person in the last year or two; the show ran its course."

Oh Kenny, this is so not your lesson to teach! No "homage to the creator"? Okay, say what you will about Ellen Wheeler, and God knows I have, but under her jurisdiction Guiding Light crafted a beautiful, PBS-worthy tribute to Irna Phillips. What have you done to honor your Mama and Daddy's legacy Kenny?

Were you paying tribute to the serial your parents Ted and Betty Corday, along with Irna Phillips created when you unceremoniously fired five of the biggest stars in the show's history (Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Stephen Nichols, Mary Beth Evans and Thaao Penghlis) and replaced them with talking dolls, and no I don't mean Timmy, I mean Molly Burnett. Is it in honor of your birthright that you continue to allow a shameless hack, who wouldn't know a long story if it bit her on the bottom to write, I mean wreck legacy characters and pen shameful storylines that see an autistic child being thrown down stairs and off piers under the guise of "social relevance"? Is allowing a storyline that has one half of your only remaining supercouple being wasted as a cartoon psychic your idea of getting back to the basics of good soap opera? Kenny, why don't you stick to talking about what you know best, how to improve one's golf game.

Sometimes you need to know when to keep you mouth shut. Ken clearly hasn't learn this on yet.

In all fairness I can not comment on GL . I didn't watch it.

It just proves where his head is...it seems someone has a banner that describes it very well. It's too bad Betty put her faith in him. Obviously he didn't deserve it. I'm still wondering who left the show at the end of 06-beginning of 07. Whoever it was was keeping Kenny from destroying the show earlier.

For those who have been supporting the path he has been taking Days--how do you like him now? Still think the show won't be canceled?

I don't suport every path that Ken Corday but I know that the times are not very good. I think that the show is better now than in 03-07 when the economy was stronger. Remember the Gemini twins? The Eden story? The Vendetta Story?(Santeen?) Billie Swap baby Alive? Yes Days has been worse and I sat through it.


I do think Ken Corday did run off his moulth but we are all guilty of that since I have never seen GL I think I will just take it at face value.

Ellen Wheeler was trying new camera techniques. That is what made it different than the other soaps.

If it was just one comment, I'd also give him a pass. But it seems like ever statement he makes, he proves just how condescending he is and how little he does know about the fans, the genre and about being a producer.

I do not know what the technques since I don't watch the show. The shows ratings have been at the bottom since the early 90 of shows still on the air so it was a last atempt to keep the show aflot.

As for his comments well he said somthing stupid but he has improved the show in the last year. Are you seriously telling me Days is worse now than during the stories that I mentioned in the above post?

Gotta LOVE Jamey from Daytime Confidential,here is his thoughts on what Corday said.


Perhaps the most well-informed, prolific, skilled— golfer in daytime, Days of Our Lives executive producer Ken Corday speaks out to Soap Opera Digest about CBS basically signaling the end of broadcast television by cancelling Guiding Light.

"In desperate times, desperate measures are sometimes the worst things to resort to. What GUIDING LIGHT became was not a soap opera. It smacked of ESPN or the evening news and done without any homage to the creator of the show. It wasn't because of one inept person in the last year or two; the show ran its course."

Oh Kenny, this is so not your lesson to teach! No "homage to the creator"? Okay, say what you will about Ellen Wheeler, and God knows I have, but under her jurisdiction Guiding Light crafted a beautiful, PBS-worthy tribute to Irna Phillips. What have you done to honor your Mama and Daddy's legacy Kenny?

Were you paying tribute to the serial your parents Ted and Betty Corday, along with Irna Phillips created when you unceremoniously fired five of the biggest stars in the show's history (Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Stephen Nichols, Mary Beth Evans and Thaao Penghlis) and replaced them with talking dolls, and no I don't mean Timmy, I mean Molly Burnett. Is it in honor of your birthright that you continue to allow a shameless hack, who wouldn't know a long story if it bit her on the bottom to write, I mean wreck legacy characters and pen shameful storylines that see an autistic child being thrown down stairs and off piers under the guise of "social relevance"? Is allowing a storyline that has one half of your only remaining supercouple being wasted as a cartoon psychic your idea of getting back to the basics of good soap opera? Kenny, why don't you stick to talking about what you know best, how to improve one's golf game.

Improved the show ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!! He has destroyed three of the most popular fan bases by firing the firing the actors--you know ones with actual talent. The third-Bo and Hope is on the way out from what I've read on the boards. Bo as a psychic? There is no basis for it and from what I've seen the writers did less than zero research and are writing from sheer bigotry. It's looking like Hope will be having an affair with Roman--which is totally contrary to her character and Roman's. The who killed Trent murder mystery was a joke--a bad one at that. No one cared that he was killed and Nick being the killer was just pulled out of the air. His big drug problem, which was supposed to make him crazy, developed over a week. Then you have the triangles, the baby switching, instant love from sex in elevators....the storylines are inconsistent, shallow and fortune cookies are better thought out and developed. The new characters don't have personalities--the are caricatures. The actors don't have enough talent to be cast in high school productions. Showing and looking good doesn't make you an actor; it makes you a mannequin, which is all the newbies are. The experienced actors they have brought in haven't been given anything to work with when it comes to character or script.

Higley has been fired from every gig she has gotten because she writes the same crap wherever she goes. She refuses to learn the show or character history. Days no longer is a show of suspense, drama, romance and humor, but one of soft porn for tweens and teens where love is sex in an elevator. That's all she can write. I put a few Youtube videos on my blog of the good old Days. If you aren't afraid of having your delusions shattered, watch them. That was good TV.

Everyone in the industry knows it. Kenny knows it and that's why he hired her--to tank the show.

Are the other soaps doing better--I don't know. I do know that the writers keep being circulated from show to show which has made them all stagnant.

But hey, I've got my resume material. There has to be someone who is looking for fresh material. I've fulfilled my promise plus. The ghost story is finished. The Wedding is finished. I've moved on to new projects. How much I'll be visiting the boards in the future, I don't know. Cause frankly, I've run out of things to say. It's time to flush the toilet of the crap Higley has been spreading. Eventually the septic tank will break it on down and Days will disappear into history, taking with it Higley, Corday and Tomlin. Good ridden to the last three.

What an ass. At least Guiding Light kept and used many of their beloved vets and even brought back former popular characters to try and make an effort. Too bad it was too late. Corday is one to talk, look at how many popular and talented actors he has fired and how many useless, talentless newbies he's brought on. Shut up Ken! Jerk.

Days of Our Live: Wedding Part 3

I promised the fans on the NBC boards that I would do a special storyline. Here it is. It's called The Wedding. Fans of Tony and Anna will particularly enjoy it. It was going to be in two parts; however that has changed. The storyline is taking longer than expected because I'm putting more detail into it and frankly I've been working on other projects.

I've really enjoyed writing the script and bringing back the good, old Days. It is just very sad that the current writers can't do the same. Sex is not romance. Just because a man beds her, it doesn't mean he loves her, which is what Days has become. If I had been given the opportunity, I would have taken Days back to the basics. There wouldn't be the big debate over which man Sami would chose. Eventually I would bring her and Lucas back together, but not until after they had work through their own issues. They both would have been given plots of their own. Sami would have gone back to school to get her high school diploma and on to college. She would have proven that just because you drop out of school to have a child, it doesn't mean that you can't go back. Lucas would have become involved first with helping the Wounded Warriors, before taking over the Horton Foundation. Moving in with Alice would have set them on the path to becoming the new Alice and Tom. A woman from Stefano's past would have not only given him a new love interest, but she would have been an equal partner in crime. EJ and Ava would have become involved with the corruption in the horse industry; they never would be truly good guys, but they also wouldn't be the evil couple in town. Steve and Max would continue to help find missing children, including the granddaughter when her abusive father kidnaps her. Roman and Alyssa would slowly fall in love. There would be the murders that happened John and Marlena's house would be investigated and solved. I would have brought back old friends and new characters who would have been slowly developed. Since there was no Trent in my universe, there would be no Melanie. Without either, Nick would still be on the show. I would have paired him with Eugene to work on the new energy source.

You don't have to break couples up to keep them interesting. In writing 101, you learn that there four traditional conflict themes to both short stories and novels, however I have added a fifth.

Man against himself
Man against man
Man against nature
Man against God or spirituality
Man against Fate or Karma

If a writer is creative, it is easy to ways to keep couples together and interesting at the same time.

Days could have and should have so much more to offer. It's too bad that it won't be given the opportunity that Betty and Ken Corday gave it. Soaps aren't loosing fan; they are suffering from stagnation and network executives' greed.

There has to be a soap or drama out there who is looking for a creative writer. Thank you for your support and the courage to keep trying to achieve my dream.

This is the final chapter in the ghost story.http://www.theresachaze.com/files/days3-21-09.pdf

There will be one more special posting soon.


However, if you are just starting to read the script, you will want to start at the next link in order to understand the plots. This is what I previously posted on the NBC Days boards not all of the posting are in the current proper format. However the posts at the bottom are in the format that I will be submitting to other soaps in hope of getting a writing gig.

Here's the deal. I am cleaning up and formatting the script that I have already posted into the correct format. I will be using it as resume material to get a writing gig on one of the other soaps. Although much of it will be familiar who have been keeping up, there have been a reshuffling of the scenes as well as some tweaking. Originally, I put little effort into the scrip, especially in the beginning. This better reflects me as a professional writer. However, since the program I am using doesn't have a spell check, there may still be some typos. If you see any, please let me know in the comments section. Thanks.

Eye of Ra: A Mystical, Horror Film Based on Egyptian Mythology

Eye of Ra is an occult horror film that is based on Egyptian mythology. When Isis stole power from Ra, she initiated a guardian who not only had the strength to be the focal point for this great power, but who also had the ability to protect its secrets from those who would abuse them. Jealous of her grandmother and daughters’ spiritual gifts, Sandra takes her youngest daughter, Rikki and disappears. Seeking power, she searches the world for the Eye of Ra; when she finds it, it is Rikki not her that the Guardian chooses. Enraged, Sandra makes a pact with the Dark Ones; if they help her destroy her own daughter, she will use the Eye in their name. Sandra attacks in the middle of the initiation ceremony. The Priestess is killed before it can be completed. Barely escaping with her life, Rikki returns to the small town of her birth. Her physical wounds have healed, but the guilt and self-doubt keep her from seeing the truth of her life. Sandra follows Rikki to finish what she started, bringing the evil of the Dark Ones with her, and a small northern Michigan town learns the black secret that had been buried among them for generations.

The Fallacy of Soap Opera Ratings

The Fallacy of Soap Opera Ratings
By
Theresa Chaze

The cancellation of Guiding Light only proves that the network executives don’t understand their own industry. Soap operas are the only genre where they have a true monopoly. It is the single aspect of programming that independent and cable networks simply don’t have a way to compete. To say that the soaps were grandfathered into our lives is into an understatement. Before VCRs or DVR’s, viewers planned their schedules around their favorite TV shows, including soap operas. If they were forced to miss, they found a fellow addict to catch them up or waited for the rerun. Soaps by their very nature don‘t rerun episodes, therefore their viewers became the most loyal and reliable in the industry, making them also a consistent form of income for the networks with their own built in sponsorship consortium.

During television’s infancy, most people only had access to three stations. Competition for viewers was low in comparison to today. This was the era that soap operas were born and their fan base established. It was the guilty pleasure that no one would admit to watching, yet everyone knew what was happening. After school and on vacations, children watched and became addicted to the shows their mothers and grandmothers watched. It is a legacy of fond memories that the children of the 1960s forward have carried into their adulthood.

Although viewership has always been consistent and loyal, it has always been also under reported by Nielsen; people simply didn’t always want to admit they watched soap operas. Even through society and technology has changed, Nielsen’s way of reporting has not. They do not acknowledge delayed viewing, which has become the primary means of watching daytime programming for those who work from 9 to 5. Instead of upgrading their accounting systems to more accurate methods, they continue to use the diaries and equipment that fail to account for delayed or remote viewing.

This statistical over sight has made it appear that the genre is no longer an asset to the networks. This is far from the truth. One would only have to look at the popularity of the fan events, the merchandizing and the demand for interviews with the soap stars to see that their fan base is not only enthusiastic, but actively growing. Fans love their soaps and their stars enough to spend their time, their money and their energy on them. The peripheral businesses make hundreds of million dollars from around the world from fans that simply cannot get enough of their favorite soap.

Yet the sponsor and the networks look only at the ratings without putting them into proper context. The ratings of the past were higher due to the lack of competition for viewers. When the pie is only split three ways, all the pieces are bigger. Cable and satellite networks now give viewers more options for programming, thereby increasing the number of slices in the pie. So the question that must be both asked and answered is--are the lower rating for soap operas just a natural result of the increased division of viewers or is the genre run its course? As long as the comparisons aren’t made on a level playing field, the information they yield cannot be accurate. Before a network makes the irreversible decision to cancel a soap opera, thereby infuriating the fans base, it really needs to compare the ratings across the board for that day part. To do less could very easily cost them a valuable asset.
