Six Scenes with a View of Writing Soaps – Votes Are In!

Here are the results of the questions from our Luke and Noah Six Scenes poll. We’ve kept the poll up due to popular demand (I got such a kick out of what you all wrote, I demanded that we leave room for more suggestions).

Where Does the Scene Take Place?

Oakdale 28
Los Angeles 40
San Diego 1

Who Comes to Whom?

Noah to Luke 5
Luke to Noah 64

Who’s resistant to the relationship continuing?

Neither 2
Both 4
Noah 19
Luke 44

Who’s having a crisis?

Both 3
Neither (but soon they will both be challenged) 1
Noah 20
Luke (well, daaaah!) 1
Luke 44

Of course, my favorite answer was: “Luke (well, daaaah!)” Thank you for that.

I’m still weeding through all the suggestions for “moments.” All I know for sure is that the first kiss will be in there.

For those of you who signed up for the course, watch your emails for the webinar notification. It’s scheduled for 10/5 at 7:00 pm. All the details will be in the email. And for those of you who’d still like to sign up (it’s not too late), here’s the link:

      Absolutely have him say do and say those things, Stacie. This is your script. Your story. Setting up the different points other folks (including me) have suggested creates the kind of writing obstacles that soap opera writers encounter. I could “tell” you about the different challenges, but it’ll be a lot more instructive and rewarding as you assert your point of view while giving a nod to the circumstances you’ve been “assigned.” Best…
