I guest blog today at:

In addition to writing romance novels for Avon and Dell, and figure skating mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime, I spent many years working for TV soaps, first at ABC Daytime, then at Procter & Gamble’s As the World Turns and Guiding Light.

And, if there is one thing I learned from working in soaps, it’s that everyone has an opinion about storylines, heroes, heroines, villains, paternity puzzles, and who belongs with whom Happily Ever After.  (I also learned that consensus is an impossibility and nothing is loved by everyone all of the time.  Viva le difference!)
Read the rest of the blog, here.

And, if you really want to see evidence of the above in action, check out the Soap Opera 451 Message Board in response to the latest episode of AWT.

Here are two comments from two different readers:

1) Matt and Donna......all is right in Another World. Thank you Ms. Alina. Again.......DONNA AND MATT...

2) Ugh, Matt and the viper can go jump into the bay. Now. Today. Just. Go. Away! Matt will NEVER be interesting if he has to deal with that albatross around his neck. Please, Alina and Nicole, FREE MATT!

What's a writer to do, LOL?
