He's brewing coffee so that the rest of staff has their juices flowin' ;)

...And throwing in the vodka so that the staff can write the [[email protected]#$%^&*] that comes out on our screen.

LOL

Well, Renee is an associate head writer so I don't know why she also has that title.

Have the DAYS writers had an office on set in the past?

The reason I ask is that I have read articles in the past that ATWT has a writer's office or did have one under Sheffer.It was a popular place to be or so it was quoted in some articles.I have read that it was a loud boistorous full of laughter place when Sheffer was there.

Maybe Sheffer is establishing one on the DAYS set now.

I don't know if they did, but JER is based on the East Coast so I'm guessing not. Maybe Renee Godelia just collated everything while all the writing was done elsewhere? Just speculating...

I do remember an interview with Peter Brash from 2002 where he said he was based in New York and Paula Cwikly was based on a ranch in California and they spoke by phone and teleconferencing - rarely meeting in person. If Sheffer sets up an office, I wonder if he would force his writers to relocate to LA. Is Sheffer relocating to LA?

If I was headwriter :rolleyes: , I would want the entire writing staff on site. I think if the writing team actually worked as a team and workshoped the stories together, they would all be "feeling" the story and in tune with each other leading to tighter stories with less inconsistencies regarding character behaviour and historical facts from a macro veiwpoint and scripts would flow easier from day to day. JMO :P

Here's an interesting link about Isidingo, the South African soap - towards the bottom of the article they explain how they conduct the writing process, and describe the qualities of writers and scriptwriters. Bear in mind, the article is about 5 years old, so anything could have changed since then...

Victor Gialanella was listed today with the OLTL breakdown writers.

Looks like Frons is picking up the Days rejects :(

I think this is a Higley move rather than a Frons move. Victor was Dena's #2 when she was HW at DAYS.

Could someone please tell me the name of today's script writer at AMC? It's not one I had see before. Thanks.

- Joanna Cohen first listed as script writer on July 28

Don't know anything about her, so I did some research. I'm not sure if it's the same Joanna Cohen, though.

http://www.smh.com.au/news/FilmFondue/Film...3071899700.html

Joanna Cohen first accepted her inner film geek at the age of five when she snuck out of bed one night to secretly watch an old black and white movie from behind her parents' couch.

As she heard the dying man's plaintive cry for Rosebud, she knew she was hooked. Her teenage years were spent hanging out on the cinema strip of George Street, Sydney, going to see whatever was on next.

She studied film theory at university and learnt to use clever words like mise-en-scene. Since then she has worked as a script reader, film festival coordinator and in a number of other non-film related (rent-paying) occupations.

I swore I saw Carolyn Culliton's name in the OLTL credits a few days back.

She's been writing scripts for OLTL since August of 2005.

As of today (7/31),Melissa Salmons' name is gone from the ATWT writing credits!!!

She was one of the better scriptwriters! Didn't see this coming!

Maybe she's heading back to GL?
