LOTRFF Arghhhhhhh

 So, one of the websites that I use regularly to post my fanfiction has been sold. 

This has created a rising wave of protest among many of my friends who are much better and more prolific authors than I am.  I only have 50 stories on the website, and most of them are short.  I have decided, after reading many points of view, that I will have to go along and pull my stories from the website.  So I will copy my reviews to my private files and begin deleting my stories as quickly as possible.  I have six stories nominated for the MEFA Awards that link to that website, so I will move those links to other places that I also post.  This is all I needed - to add more work to a workload that is already overly full.  But I feel that I must do this. 

I am completely through with my main Big Bang illustration.  I showed it to several friends yesterday because I had it at the shop.  People seem to really like it.  I'll get that photographed within the next week, and as soon as the administrators have responded to my query about how to submit it, I'll get that sent off.  I am still working on pencil work for the chapter heads, but those are a bonus, not a requirement. 

Have a good last day of June.  We'll be under a Heat Advisory today with temps expected to be around 100 F (almost 38 C for my Celsius friends).  I don't have air conditioning at my house, so we'll have the fan on tonight.  It will be one day when I go to work happily because I do have air conditioning there, so I'll be comfortable for the day.

Thanks Linda. I got a good start in getting my reviews saved and deleting stories this morning and I should be able to finish this tonight. It's just one more thing to add to an overcrowded schedule though and thus, highly annoying. Friends have suggested MPTT and/or TolkienFF as possible places for me to call a new home and I am looking at those.

I like MPTT, which is easier to use. Archive of our Own is good too and run by fans for fans.

Before I deleted my stories I e mailed my most regular reviewers and told me where they could find me if they wanted to keep reading.

Emailing your regular reviewers is a good idea. I haven't been writing for that long to get regular readers, though.
