Tom King Breakdown Writer for "One Life to Live" on September 11, 20019/11 fell on a Tuesday, the day when normally we "One Life to Live" writers met to start planning the new week of outlines.

Tom Casiello Breakdown Writer for "As The World Turns" on September 11, 2001Tuesday mornings at “As the World Turns” usually meant all the writers, producers, CBS network folks, and P&G executives gathering in a conference room to turn pages from the breakdowns written last week, and sit through hours of notes.

My roommate called from her office in Midtown, and we shared a...
