Blogging has seeped into your subconscious when...

... you are unable to distinguish dreaming about a blog post from actually posting one. My posts have been sparse of late because I've been busy writing some other projects on short deadlines, but when I got up this morning I discovered several posts were missing:
  • My long-promised post about relativism and authorial intention
  • My post about the Challenger disaster
  • Most post about the Academia & WalMart article
  • My post about the recent clunker Battlestar Galactica episode
  • and finally, my post about the batch of Beowulf movies coming up
After puzzling over how all these posts could have disappeared, I suddenly realized that I had not really written them; I dreamed about writing them last night.

So, will I eventually post them? Gee, now I dunno ... it feels like I've already written them, and it's a chore to re-write something from scratch that you've already "written."

    A slightly different kind of authorial intention!?

  2. I dreamed that I read them. They were good, man.
