“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Realist Magic Liveblog 9

I'm done. Well of course I'm not done. There's all kinds of things that need to be accomplished, like putting the exact notes in, and editing it down, smoothing it out, checking for continuity and so on. But it is done. Realist Magic is finished.

In its raw state, right now, it's 75 000 words, which is pretty much where I left it last night in the last post, but I worked through the remaining notes. Now I'm just going to scan through it all in one sitting, here with a cup of coffee, listening to In the Absence of Truth by Isis, for the first time. I wonder what I said?!
