Have you spent months planning for a gala wedding and then cancelled at the last minute, leaving all the grand plans in a spiral notebook on your floor? If so, then you probably could be a writer for GH.

I think the citizens of Port Charles all went to the same Toyota-thon, as it appears they all drive identical black sedans.
February 18, 2008
Another tragic school shooting this week, and another week that GH is featuring a gun as one of the stars of the show. No excuses, in my humble opinion.
February 25, 2008
I love the Great Undead of Soaps. Once upon a time, I saw Robert and Anna explode on a ship, and then a decade or so later, they showed up at Robin's with some lame explanation about jumping ship before the explosion.
March 3, 2008
Talk about cliffhangers... The suddenly undead Diego's car balances precariously on the bridge with Sam wiggling around in the trunk and Liz fiddling around in the backseat, as the car teeters back and forth over the raging (but never before seen) river below.
March 10, 2008
There was a time, not so long ago, that I loathed and detested both Sam and Maxie
March 17, 2008
I wanted to call this column "Sonny Corinthos Must Die" but I figured I'd get a bunch of hate mail and half of you wouldn't even read past the title!
March 24, 2008
What does that have to do with GH? Nikolas just paid 10 million dollars for some pills to help him keep a tumor...
March 31, 2008
I hope Rick Hearst has jotted down the number for Emmy Submissions; he's going to need it. Rick Hearst could take his scenes this week and easily build a winning Emmy reel.

Every choice we make, small or large, eventually determines the outcome of our life.

For those of you whose sport is ranking Carly's - I sure hope you'll give Laura Wright the credit she deserves for her stellar work as a mother clinging to hope in spite of tragedy.
April 21, 2008
Signposts of nature are tremendously hard to ignore. Liz and Jason were brought to their senses years ago.
April 28, 2008
Heaven may not recognize Emily when she finally settles into the afterlife once and for all. She suddenly has a new hair color.
May 5, 2008
Nikolas finally said goodbye to Emily in her pretty peach gown with one last spin around the dance floor. Frankly, I was ready for her to ascend.
May 12, 2008
I am a great believer in eternal love. I have never loved anyone that I don't still love, to some degree. This week, we saw the sad transitions of two great loves
May 19, 2008
Spencer Cassadine was born in February 2006. That would make him 2 years old, had his growth progressed in the normal fashion.
May 26, 2008
The Dueling Blog storyline is the worst idea since the Dead Man's Hand saga.
June 2, 2008
Sonny has relinquished the rights to what he loves most -- his children.
June 9, 2008
I am celebrating another great meeting of the minds: Sam and Liz. Our dueling heroines were nice to each other this week.
June 16, 2008
Spinelli had a brief window of bliss on his date with Leyla, but eventually ended up getting arrested.
June 23, 2008
One of the sweetest moments in GH this week came after Friday's credits rolled.
June 30, 2008
I wanted to throttle Robin Scorpio this week. She's the exact sort of woman I would never, ever be friends with.
July 7, 2008
Every single time in my life I tried to lie or get away with something, I got busted.
July 14, 2008
Lulu accidentally stabbed and killed Logan, but it wasn't entirely accidental; there is the small fact that she had a giant knife in her hand.
July 21, 2008
Johnny's baby Lulu had a secret, but then she told Johnny and Maxie, and then Maxie told Spinelli and then Spinelli told Jason, so now it's not much of secret anymore.
July 28, 2008
Are Johnny and Lulu (a.k.a Joe and Linda from Chicago) going to be able to avoid the long arm of the law forever?
August 4, 2008
If Billy Mack was the detective down in New York instead of Uncle Mac, Johnny and Lulu would not have escaped justice.
August 11, 2008
When I saw Kate with 4 different bouquets of white flowers and stressing over which one to choose, I couldn't really relate as they all just looked like white flowers to me.
August 18, 2008
Molly Lansing; the forgotten child. On the down side, when Alexis took Kristina to the park, Molly got left home alone.

Johnny loves Lulu. Lulu loves Johnny. The Zacharra family tried to get Johnny to stay away from her. The Spencer family tried to get Lulu to stay away from Johnny
September 1, 2008
Lulu was teetering on the edge of sanity and desperately needed her Mama.
September 8, 2008
So, how about that murder trial? Lawyers and judges across the land must be cringing. We have everything but a kangaroo hopping around in that courtroom.
September 15, 2008
Elizabeth just can't take a hint. She showed up and attempted to seduce Jason three times in the past week, but he kept refusing her advances.
September 22, 2008
I think Kate should be in the ward with Lulu actually, because apparently she can hallucinate away the fact that Sonny slept with Carly and lied about it for months and just happily go back to planning her wedding like the Stepford Wife wannabe that she has become.
September 29, 2008
What a lovely breath of fresh air blew in from Bensonhurst. I dig Olivia. Olivia is the chick that you want to go to happy hour with after work ends on Friday night; salt of the Earth, straight forward, no nonsense.
October 6, 2008
The tender scenes between Robin and Patrick on Friday really gripped my heart. Patrick has been proposing to Robin for months.
October 13, 2008
Once Sonny discovers that Kate and Olivia kept a secret from him all these years in the form of a long lost son, we should plan to do shots every time Sonny uses the word "Betrayed." You know we'd be hammered 10 minutes in.
October 20, 2008
Sonny has been a vast source of amusement for me lately. I know that he’s not supposed to be comical but he is
October 27, 2008
Was Anthony channeling Rodney Dangerfield when he offered Sonny Claudia’s hand in marriage?
November 3, 2008
I admit, as corny and predictable as it was for Father Coates to ask that question after Robin went into labor, I still giggled.
November 10, 2008
When GH gets it right, they get it really right. This week the writers hit the bull's-eye.
November 17, 2008
When I am not writing about GH, I freelance for other websites and I recently wrote an article entitled "How to Say No to an Unwanted Request."
November 24, 2008
Olivia, go home already. Don't you work for a living?
December 1, 2008
"Married in black, you will wish yourself back."
December 8, 2008
Elizabeth finally gets it. No really, she does. Liz has always been a little slow on the uptake.
December 15, 2008
Liz has done everything she knows to try to make Jason hers, but I think she's gonna miss him for a long, long time.
