Who says daytime never gives top writing jobs to new blood? Well, I do. I say it often, because they don't. Days of Our Lives appears to be bucking that trend by promoting staff writer Ryan Quan to co-head writer alongside Dena Higley. Soap Opera Digest broke the story and that Josh Griffith has quit the 50-year-old sudser. 

Quan started as a writers assistant at Days of Our Lives in 2009 and worked his way up. He's been both a breakdown writer and script writer for the soap.

Griffith, according to SOD, is leaving DAYS to "pursue other projects and interests". I wish him well. Lord knows I  wasn't a fan of the dark turn DAYS took under Griffith and Higley, but there's no denying Griffith is a talented writer. His sensibilities  and style would fit in well on the staff of a gritty cable drama. 

As for Higley... How soon can someone replace her?
