If you were approached by ABC and asked to create a soap opera..what would you make your soap about. .. Besides asking you to create one..imagine you were giving the carta blanca...blank check ..to spend as much as you needed for this show.l THere are so many soaps out there..just curious as to what you would make your soap about? Me..ha ha..I would make the soap about one family only instead of one hundred thousand different coming in and out of the scenes and I would call the soap.. "Maybe Tomorrow"

Ah this has been a long time dream of mine, I actually even began writing dialogue for a Northwest Soap. It would be in a forestry community with loggers and lumbermen against enviromentalist and everyone in between. Involving mostly 6-10 families that it would surround. Instead of a hosptial though of course we would have one. There would be the sawmill and a local cafe the local folks hang out in. The school and a college the Forest Service compound and BIA. Plus some bigwig politicians. My soap would be called, "Carson's Crossing". There would be the Hardisty family, the Barringers, Woodalls, Quades and Torgusens. Haukes, Nolands and Hyatts

As the frustrated writer that I am, I have tons of ideas, basically, I would do it about corruption in the high spheres of the goverment. All of these with a big dose of love, suffering, being in the wrong place at the wrong time... cheers!
