Soap Execs actually go out of their way not to hire people who like the soap genre, I've found.

Lord, I know *I* could fix it. Hell, half the fanfic writers I know could fix it. I've never understand what's so damned hard about coming up with a good story. Personally, I think that part of the problem (not just on Days, but on other soaps, as well) is that the writers are more professional writers (who're only writing for soaps because they can't get jobs writing anywhere else) instead of writers who specifically want to work in soaps because of their love of and respect for the genre.
