Soap

Did I tell you when I was going to save the Fox network with my soap opera concept?Back in the 90s I wanted to write the next great American daytime soap opera to save the Fox network! Did the network need saving? Maybe or maybe not.

I would pull actors from the nighttime soaps and I would take the most popular characters that were written off the other soaps and invite them on my show. The show would feature storylines that focus on minorities and their lives.

See ABC, NBC and CBS had daytime dramas. Why not FOX?! I had a notebook full of storyline possibilities. I subscribed to the Soap Opera Magazines to know who was leaving their shows . To know what storylines were coming and ending. How could I improve upon what already had been done?

Then the 00’s hit and the networks started canceling the soaps one by one for talk shows and cooking shows and more news. I tossed my notebook to the side. There wouldn’t be anyone buying a daytime soap or even a nighttime soap if it didn’t include supernatural elements.

Today there are only 4 left. 1 on ABC, 1 on NBC and 2 on CBS. Not great, but what is good is that streaming channels have increased with channels all over the place who need content.

Shall I search for my notebooks from years ago and retool my concept? I have much knowledge that I didn’t have before . Is this my time to shine…..

Would you watch?

Manifesting greatness starting in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1….

not my ally

my stories I pass

built to last

on to the new

tried and true

trying to move forward

my expectations are lowered

messing with some

keep my cards close

don’t want to ghost

but what else can I do

if you take my humanity

use it against me

and expect me to say nothing

not on my watch

clock keeps ticking

world keeps turning

who are you again?

blooming onion

I’m over 40

don’t know where I’m going

don’t know when it will last

the agony of regrets in my past

each day I’m given

should be worth celebrating right?

adventure about to take flight

any day now

life is mine for the taking

I’m just making

excuses.

am i lazy or unmotivated

or both

gotta shake it off

more Mariah than Taylor

made for me

life, easy, breezy

by the horns

gonna make it

so it is and it is so.

here’s the show!
