This month I'm scheduled to give 3 presentations I've never done before: 16th Century Navigation; Pirates in History (with Dan); and Blogging for Cruisers. The research for all of them has been a lot of fun, and I have never had any fear of public speaking at all. I do stress, however, about doing a good job and getting the details right and making the presentations both fun and informative. So I knew I'd be plenty busy in April, and wondered why I'd voluntarily agreed to do anything that had a (*gasp*) deadline attached to it, even a somewhat fun one.
Two days before the first presentation, I dreamed that I was on stage, totally flustered as I tried to explain how the pirates in the 16th century accessed the internet with their laptops while at sea. Yeah. I don't remember my dreams often, but when I do, they are usually disjointed fragments. No dream interpretation needed here - it's obvious that my subconscious was processing my huge to-do list!
