First, is it available to the public and has anyone seen it?

 

Second, I am wondering how much of it she transferred to AW and how much of it she may have recycled for OLTL. I know Sadie Gray was based on her maid and she once said she promised to create that character is she ever got her own show. Does that mean the character Sadie was in her AMC bible considering it was written before OLTL aired??

 

I also wonder how she describes Phoebe and Erica. I wonder what Erica was written like on paper compared to how La Lucci "Connected the Dots".

Yes. And I wouldn't mind seeing Agnes' projection for that story to see the differences between Rachel and Erica (along with Mona and Ada). That may be harder to come by.

I am talking about 1959. Irna placed Agnes at ATWT back in 1958 (?) and Bill at GL around the same year. Irna then decided to switch them out because she knew they would flourish if Agnes was at GL and bill at ATWT. I think there could have been a period when they worked together maybe to consult one another about stories they had in mind before they switched permanently.

In one of Agnes' interviews she said Irna placed her at GL as a challenge and a bit of a punishment.  The impression I got was that Irna was very happy to have only one successful soap at a time, and did not worry about the fate of her other 'children'.  (Was GL the first red-headed step-child?)

Punishment!! For What?

 

Also, I have gotten the impression Agnes was the same way with Loving for a while. Meaning she stopped caring about AMC then went back to it.

I was too young to see Loving, but what went wrong with that soap, I mean it was created by two awesome writers

It really would be a treat to read it.

All I know is that she wrote it in 1965 (while on vacation in St. Croix).

Back around 2006, I was going for my MFA in creative writing at Rosemont College. As you may know, Agnes Nixon lives in Rosemont, PA, which is where the college is located. I mentioned to the administrators and faculty about Agnes living in town and suggested that they reach out to her to get her to come to campus to speak about her career and her soap creations. They loved the idea but then did nothing to pursue it. It was such a wasted opportunity.
