Mythbusters - ON HOLD!

Hey all!

I was hoping to continue talking about more myths regarding soap writing, but the time has gotten away from me... and I'm leaving in about 17 hours for IslaMorada to work on a photo shoot. (I know, right? Me? Working a photo shoot?) It's crazy, but it was a great opportunity that fell in my lap, and with daytime headed... well, where it's headed, I'm taking full advantage of every opportunity that comes my way. Time to find a new future, and new doors to walk through.

In the meantime, I've also got my hands full with that writing project that's been floating around my apartment and an outside desk or two for the last six months. Things seem to be happening, but in this biz, you tend to get the rug pulled out from underneath you a lot. If this year has taught me anything, it's that I need to let go a little, when it comes to dreams of the past. But it doesn't make me any less of a fan, that's for damn sure. And I'll keep trying, while I continue on this crazy journey.

I'll be back with the rest of my debunked myths next week... but in the meantime, have a fantastic weekend. Play nice, and I'll talk to y'all next Thursday!

Did you know I actually had to look up "Islamorada" on Wikipedia? First I've heard of the place. (Mama was right: you learn something new every day.) Ah, well. Be safe, and return to the blog soon!

I've come to root for you as I've read your blog. Hope these holidays and new year bring good things for you and yours. Have a great time on the photo shoot!

Hey Tom,

First off, I have to say I really appreciate the kind of knowledge you're imparting in your blog. I'm the archetypal "young kid trying to break into the business" and your insight into the entertainment world, particularly soap opera writing, is fascinating.

I actually heard from a friend that you had posted about the Days of our Lives Brady-Dimera feud storyline (in late '07) and that somehow it never saw its original conclusion. Is that info available somewhere online? I'm dying to hear the "real" ending to something that started out with so much potential. It must feel wonderful to have had a hand in shaping such a long-running legacy.

I know you must be a busy man, but if you had some time to share with me some advice on how succeed in the world of entertainment writing, I would be so grateful. Is there a way I could contact you directly? I can just post my e-mail in another message if there is no other option.

Thanks and keep up the wonderful work.
