I went to bed around 11:30pm last night and after just a little while managed to fall asleep. Then I woke up a little before two and didn’t get back to sleep until almost six!
At first I took it in stride, figuring I’d fall back asleep soon enough. Ha! As is so often the case, I was probably stressing over money and my future, but it wasn’t as though I was truly panicked. I entertained myself by figuring out what I would do if I had $200,000. $75,000 down on a house and $25,000 for whatever comes up. The other $100,000 I was using to make my house payments for the next four years or so.
Still not sleeping, I thought about book sales, wondering how many books I would have to sell just to make $10,00o a year. I think I make $1.70 per book so it comes to over 500 books a month. That’s a lot of books, and a little daunting. No wonder I couldn’t sleep after that realization! I mean, lets face it, it’s not as though you could live on $10,000.
I think it’s clear, my books need to be turned into films and they need to be blockbusters!
