“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

Hyperobjects Liveblog 23

39 000 words. I'll tell you a secret: I had no real idea I could do this until today. It was a challenge. I know it makes the book better.

But even with The Ecological Thought I only pushed to 30 000 words, and that was with notes.

I don't believe I've ever been at the stage of generating new ideas at this word count before. And of course my first few books were far more patched together.
