"99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer..."
NOOOO! Get that tune out of my head!
This is not a post about beer or repetitive songs that make you crazy. This is about 99 and counting...
99 more days until The Wild Sight is released!
HURRAY! I'm down to double digits!
Some numbers are just too much to conceptualize, like the national debt (GAH!). Or visualize, like when the pilot comes on the p.a. system and announces we are flying at 35,000 feet. I can't even wrap my mind around how much that might be, so I usually just say, "Are we there yet?" When I think that my book will sell more copies (I HOPE) than all the current residents of the small seaside town where my son resides, I even have a difficult time with that.
But 99 is easier to wrap my mind around. 99 is a doable number. Large, but not insurmountable. With 99 I can actually see that tiny shaft of light at the end of the tunnel, and it is definitely not an oncoming train.
In 99 more days, my dream will be realized! My book will be on the bookstore shelves! It still doesn't feel entirely real sometimes, but with only 99 more days to go, it's starting to.
