Hyperobjects Liveblog 12

I hit 13 000 words yesterday and decided to work on my essay for Continent. —the one called “objects as temporary autonomous zones.” I figured that sometimes a detour can be most refreshing, and I seem to be quite well ahead of my schedule.

It's always beneficial, I find, to give yourself a schedule that you know you can meet. So I tend to set the bar lower than I could. The book is humming long now, and I think I'll be able to write a significant amount more before I look at any notes, though this may have diminishing returns as I go. It will be interesting to see whether I break this self-imposed rule. There's almost enough of the basic ideas down for it not to matter too much to the smoothness—but not quite.
