Chapter 3 is up, for those of you reading along.
One of the challenges about doing the expansion is that I have to move exposition to different places than I had it before. If I explain how the AI works in the third scene of the novella, that’s fine. But if that third scene is now the core of the 5th chapter, that’s way too late for the exposition. This is where having readers early on is helpful because they can flag the areas that I need to do some more explaining.
