I am an avid reader of Soap Opera Digest and I contribute often to the Sound Off section. It's satisfying to have that forum to vent about my soap concerns, but the lag time between hitting send on the email and seeing it in print is frustrating. So I decided to use this forum instead.
I'm the author of three novels: Young Adult novels
CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE PSYCHIC (TWRP) and GENIUS SUMMER, and a New
Adult/Contemporary Romance CERTAINLY SENSIBLE (TWRP). They're all
available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I've got a follow-up novel
to CONFESSIONS coming out later this year with The Wild Rose Press,
TEENAGE PSYCHIC ON CAMPUS. Yes, my POV character has grown up a little
and is now in college.
Writing/editing novels takes a lot of
time, and people tell me blogging does, too. So to save valuable time,
I'd like to get straight to what I think is important: DAYTIME SOAPS!!!
Yes, that's right, I'm a huge fan of both "Bold and the Beautiful" and
"General Hospital." I've been watching GH since the Luke and Laura days,
or actually a little before, but I didn't start watching BB until after
"All My Children" was cancelled. I needed something to occupy my lunch
hour in that time slot, but I didn't want to invest in another hour-long
soap. I followed Jacob Young from AMC on a Friday to B&B on a
Monday, and promptly got hooked.
So here's what's bugging me
today: Steffy on B&B. She used to be one of my favorite characters,
but lately I'd like to smack her. Is this a grown, married woman who is
President of a major corporation? Because she's acting like a spoiled
teenager. I get that she's got a hate on for Quinn, but when Steffy
moved out on her husband (Quinn's son, Wyatt) and blamed Quinn, that's
when I got angry at Mrs. Spencer. No, Steffy, no one is forcing you to
jeopardize your marriage, and constantly saying "it's your fault" is the
hallmark of adolescents. Her husband Wyatt is behaving a lot more
responsibly, trying to save his marriage. When Quinn enlisted Ivy's help
to distract Liam (Wyatt's brother/Steffy's true love), I had to agree
with Quinn. Steffy is a married woman and has no business sharing
intimate moments with another man.
Happy soap viewing!
