What is your favorite Broadway Musical?

By and far, and always, the best – Phantom of the Opera.

Okay, I haven’t seen any others, but I am happy to stop at Phantom. From the very first chord to the last lingering notes of Erik proclaiming “It’s over now, the Music of the Night,” I get chills.

Face it, I’m a sucker for the tortured soul. I won’t say many of my characters are tortured in the same way as Erik, but they all have a bit of torture in them. I relate to him as both a person and a writer. I also played Erik in several play-by-mail games and had a blast!

So, what is your favorite Broadway Musical?

What is the best thing that has happened to you this week?

I got tired. Tired of living small. Tired of being afraid. Tired of saying, over and over, that I was going to change my life, work on my manuscripts, clean my house, fix my yard, live in the moment and then not doing it.

Have you ever had the feeling that something is changing inside you? Something vast and fantastic?

I have been feeling that way all week, like I am waiting for something new to be born inside of me. I was depressed and tired and just not able to do anything much.

Today, I woke up happy. The sun is shining. My mood is better. I am positive and hopeful and ready to try again to shape my world to my specifications.

Let the birth begin!

What is your top Bucket List item?

Let's do itI have always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. I have been up in one, up and down, still tethered to the earth, but never really ridden in one. This was on my bucket list before I had a bucket list. Unfortunately, every time a chance comes up, I am tight on cash.

One day….. one day soon!

What are your top five favorite TV shows?

I tend to change what kind of TV I like, depending on what I feel like watching. If I had to list my top five shows, they would go something like this:

  1. Firefly – because… well….. just because.
  2. Documentaries – history, crime or just about anything which looks interesting.
  3. Reality TV – mostly because I’m a writer and writer’s love to peek into other people’s lives. (But please, no Bachelor, Bachelorette or any show eating yucky things).
  4. Cooking shows – not sure why, I just like them. And how are they that darn happy all the time?
  5. Amazon Prime’s Bosch. If you love the Harry Bosch series, you need to watch this series.

TV isn’t a big deal for me. In fact, we don’t even have a TV in the house anymore. We do, however, have computers for watching. I don’t watch TV on a regular basis, unless I am using it as background noise when I am working on the computer. In those cases, I usually listen to short attention span shows like Buzzfeed Unsolved.

Hey, maybe I should add that one to my list!

What do you watch?

What is one step you have taken towards a current goal?

My biggest goal at this time is to finalize my filing for bankruptcy. Filing is a reality I have put off and ignored for too long. Now, I have to step forward and do what needs to be done, instead of hiding and crying because I don’t want to do it. At this point, it doesn’t matter if I want to file or not. I have no other choice.

To take a step forward, I dropped off the paperwork last Monday and have a meeting set for next Monday to turn in the final paperwork and meet with the lawyer.

I don’t like this. I don’t like not paying what I owe. Truth is, besides having no choice, I will be paying it all, just not on the schedule or timetable the creditors want.

My biggest fear is that the payments will be more than I can handle, what with still paying my mortgage, car and bank loan outside of the bankruptcy. I don’t want to live with this stress for another five years.

People tell me to just calm down, that the Trustee won’t set me up for failure, but until I know…. I’ll worry.

What steps have you taken towards your goal?
