It's actually been complete for several weeks, but I've been busy rescanning, making edits, and putting together the full chapter on an external site. I started using Squarespace to host that, since I've been using Weebly for my portfolio page since 2009 and just don't think they are keeping up with the times. For instance, slide show capabilities are very finicky, especially on a mobile device, and they don't allow native touch options. I might migrate all of this over there one day, but that's not really a priority right now. Especially considering that it would need to be entirely manual since SS/Weebly don't play nice.
Anyway, I'm super stoked to have a complete chapter in front of me, and feel it really helped me reach some semblance of closure, after ritualistically meditating on these painful things over the last year. I'm now settling into the stage of knowing I should start shopping it around – that was the goal of starting with a chapter in the middle, after all – but am also feeling like the commercialization of it right now would feel disruptive to the productivity I've been feeling.
Here's the chapter!
