I finished Realist Magic. Well I guess you're never done with a book completely. But this is a finished book now, in the sense that readers can assess it and I can polish it, perhaps revise it some. But it's saying what I want it to say in roughly the way I want to say it.
Now I'm going to turn my attention back to Hyperobjects. Hyperobjects is a very different experience for me because I'm not having to push to write it. Realist Magic is a project that has pushed my thinking. Not all projects are like that. Some things that occurred to me while writing it have genuinely surprised me. Ecology without Nature was like that.
The book is right around 80 000 words, which is pretty much where it should be. At this point, it's best to let it go and wait for fresh eyes to see it.
