One Life's Erika Slezak Sounds Off

One Life to Live legend Erika Slezak on head writer Dena Higley in her March 2007 newsletter:

Dena makes noises of, “Oh yes you are wonderful, this and that” and then she writes nothing. She wants to write for her own characters and she wants to write stories that she thinks are interesting but nobody else does. She doesn’t write stories, she writes events. It’s like one event – let’s have a bomb, let’s have a plane crash – but there is no story.

It’s all out the window. But Dena doesn’t care about the rich history of the show, which is evident in what she writes.
