I think the only solution is to win the lottery... it's a shame I don't actually play it.

Huh. It's funny that. I think about what I would do with a massive lottery win and the first things that come to mind are: donating money to my dojo because the building needs maintenance my sensei can't afford very easily; helping a friend and his wife who've been really struggling financially for the last 2 years through no fault of their own; getting my parents' house fixed up properly. I can't actually think of anything I actually want for myself. Strange. I'm sure I could think of something to spend it on, but nothing I would consider actually necessary.

In other news, I'm thinking of trying to get an AO3 account and uploading all my fic there. I think there's a long waiting list or something - not sure. I don't know, but it seems to be the new default location for a lot of fic given the tumblr/LJ split. Anyone have an account? Is it worth doing?

I have an AO3 account and I rather like it. I also have a spare invite for the AO3, so if you want it, PM me your email address and it's yours:)

I like AO3 a lot. I post there first nowadays. I'm happy to help navigate too, if wanted.
I've asked for another invite to give you.

I hope work goes well for you tomorrow, and going forward!

The one thing I found (and it might have been fixed by now) is if you have a long (multi-chaptered) story then upload and publish each chapter as you go rather than putting all the chapters in at the draft and then publishing all at once. While it might feel like teasing the readers the system used to get it's electrons in a slight twist editing multi-chaptered drafts if, for example, you spotted a typo that needed correction.

Another AO3 lover!

Two cents too late: I have an account. Had to wait about 3 months for it. I'm using it to archive the stuff of mine that I like. Interface-wise, I'm not that fond of it --- I can't make the letters dark enough --- but it's workable. There is a way to make multi-chapter stories pull up all at once, which is nice, but people are starting to thwart it by posting chapters as series. More clicks that way, I guess, but way too annoying for me to bother with, even if I liked the story.
