I compiled a Halloween playlist- Broadway-style. Some songs were selected simply because they have an eerie vibe to them.
“The Phantom of the Opera” from The Phantom of the Opera “Dead Mom” from Beetlejuice “Halloween” from Be More Chill “Vigil” from Snoopy the Musical “Time Warp” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show “The Mad Hatter” from Wonderland “Tevye’s Dream” from Fiddler on the Roof “Little Shop Of Horrors” from Little Shop Of Horrors “Facade” from Jekyll & Hyde “The Mob Song” from Beauty and the Beast
“Mean Green Mother From Outer Space” From Little Shop Of Horrors* “Masquerade” from The Phantom of the Opera “Hellfire” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame “Hello, Little Girl” from Into the Woods “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream” from The Book of Mormon “The Ballad Of Sweeney Todd” from Sweeney Todd “No Good Deed” from Wicked “Be Prepared” from The Lion King “Why We Build the Wall” from Hadestown “Last Midnight” from Into the Woods “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid “Thriller” from MJ the Musical “Alive” from Jekyll & Hyde “Kiss Of The Spider Woman” from Kiss of the Spider Woman

Aspiring authors, if I can give you one bit of advice, it would be to stop talking about your book/story and start writing it. Whether I’m at a book signing or a social event, it never fails that at least one person will ask me how to find a publisher or even how to self-publish an amazing story that they’ve created…in their head.
When I ask them how much of the story they’ve written, they will almost certainly stare blankly at me before sheepishly admitting that they haven’t typed a word of it yet.
The only thing that separates a writer from a wannabe? The follow-through. If you’re still talking about your idea instead of committing it to paper, you’re a wannabe….and no one wants to be labeled a wannabe…so stop talking and start writing. 🙂 Your story won’t write itself. #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #writingadvice #writers #bookstagram

New Nate Bargatze stand-up specials always make me happy. Amazon Prime released the comedian’s latest offering, Nate Bargatze: Hello, World!, earlier this week. Watched it last night and it did not disappoint. From his child misconceptions about the White House to his takes on his wife mowing the lawn and selling items online to strangers were hilarious. I like that his humor is never mean-spirited. He’s such an entertaining storyteller.
