WEEK OF OCTOBER 21, 2007 EDITION

THIS WEEK MARKS THE SIXTH EDITION OF THE WEEKLY SL INSIDER FEATURE, "THE WRITER'S CORNER." EACH WEEK I, TIM LOWERY (BETTER KNOWN AS PHOENIXRISING05), AND MY FELLOW SALEM LIVES HEAD WRITER, PATRICK L. EWING (BETTER KNOWN AS ROMAN), WILL TAKE TIME OUT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM READERS AND ANYONE ELSE THAT DECIDES TO CHECK OUR FAN FICTION BLOG OUT. WE WILL TAKE TURNS ANSWERING QUESTIONS EACH WEEK. THESE QUESTIONS CAN BE QUESTIONS ABOUT CASTING, WRITING, PAST STORIES, CURRENT STORIES, OR WHATEVER COMES TO MIND REALLY PERTAINING TO SALEM LIVES. PLEASE REMEMBER TO PM US QUESTIONS DURING THE WEEK FOR US TO ANSWER AND ALSO REMEMBER YOU CAN POST QUESTIONS VIA COMMENTING HERE IN THE BLOG. IF WE RECEIVE NO QUESTIONS, ROMAN AND I WILL JUST ANSWER QUESTIONS BASED ON REACTIONS TO EPISODES AND DISCUSSIONS WE HAVE HAD WITH OTHERS. SO, WITHOUT FURTHER ADIEU, HERE WE GO:

THIS WEEK'S WRITER IN THE HOT SHEET: PATRICK EWING (ROMAN)

Q: Do you care to respond to the story line point that Alyson let Nicole off with a warning when she was caught taking Sam, Alyson son?

A: A: We will fix that this upcoming week. Sometimes a plot point needs to progress for it to get to the point it was meant to be. I didn't agree with it, but went along with it after my partner and I came to an understanding that in the future, it would not be wise to have this happen again. I hope that our readers stick with this character to see what is coming up.

Q: Whose idea was it to put Jack and Billie together and to try out the Steve/Hope “experiment”?

A: Well, that was my partner. He wanted to see where the fans would lean to and he was right on. Jack and Billie are a match made because there is so much history between them that can be tapped into. And Steve and Hope........what is there to say? Fans have been wanting them together for years. So, he thought it would be time to try it out to see where it goes. It is working out very well. Stay tuned, though. More of that is to come.

Q: Stefano seems to have found his backbone in recent episodes. What is the thought process behind this?

A: Stefano became a man who talked WAY too much [!@#$%^&*] and wasn’t backing it up. And, frankly, I think readers got sick and tired of him always threatening someone and then sitting back and playing chess, listening to opera or having a brandy. It was time for this great man to take action, and, as Hogan Sheffer would say, “Get his balls back!” I hope the readers think he has and, rest assured, he will not go back to being some damn mouse just talking [!@#$%^&*] and not backing it up.

From now on, this Stefano DiMera means business! (laughs)

Q: Does that mean that Victor or any others will be sacrificed to make Stefano stronger?

A: Oh, hell no. Some of the best and most humbling comments I have read came from readers who said they loved Victor and how he is written. The challenge is to keep him just as strong as Stefano and for it to make sense on the blog. We are up for that challenge. The characters will have the strength and the good sense to do what they need to do. None of that dumbing down characters just to prop up some other character. Victor will remain a vital figure, just as vital as Stefano.

Q: What is coming up next?

A: Tune in Friday, October 26th and you’ll see. It has already started but it kicks into high gear on that day. The stakes rise. And, unlike that garbage on The Young And The Restless right now, we will deliver.

Previews and Peeks into Wk of 10/22/07:

-A Marriage Hangs In The Balance.
-Violence Erupts Between Father And Son.
-A Miracle Occurs.
-Two Couples Are On The Brink.
-Deadly Adversaries Prepare To Strike, And..........

On Friday, October 26th.........

Salem’s Night Of Terror........Begins!!!!!!!!


Next Week..........All HELL Breaks Loose!!! Witness The Most Terrifying Night Of Their Lives!!!





Catching Up With: Philece Sampler

Salem Lives sits down with Philece Sampler (ex-Renee, Days) to see what she’s been up to since leaving daytime and how she feels about a turn on Salem Lives.


SLI: Thank you for sitting down with us, Philece.

PS: Thank You. My pleasure.

SLI: First question. Would you come back to daytime?

PS: You know, I’m having a wonderful time doing voice work and just being a wife. My life is nice, slow, and easy. (laughs) I don’t see myself coming back to daytime. But, I do love the fact that Renee gets referenced on SL and Days. I truly don’t know how they could bring back a woman whose been dead for twenty years and was buried but, I guess you can ask Stephen Nichols for the answer to that question! (laughs)

SLI:
What do you think of SL?

PS: It’s very exciting. I have spoken with both men who run that show and they seem to have their heads screwed on straight. It’s not perfect, nothing is. But, I truly love what they are doing there. The romance, action, adventure......it all works for them.

SLI: Last question. How do you feel about Days killing off Renee, with so much story to be told?

PS: That was their decision. Not mine. I still hear from fans, all these years later, that they feel it was stupid to kill her off after making her a DiMera and leaving the stuff with Tony and David so wide open. I’ll be P.C. and say that it may not have been the best move but I guess it was best for the show at the time. Who knows. I’m just glad that everyone accepted me into their living rooms every day and that they still remember me.

SLI: Thanks for your time, Philece.

PS: My pleasure.


On Friday, October 26th.........

Salem Braces Itself............

For The Ultimate Evil!!!!!

A Night Of Terror...........Begins!!!!
