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.

I truly feel for you and all the others getting caught having to backup your reviews and find a new home for your stories. The way things are going down over there is so regrettable - and so PREVENTABLE.

Like I told elfscribe5, I heartily recommend creating a personal archive - Yola is a very easy to use freebie site - that you can arrange as you see fit. If you decide to go there, lemme know if I can help you. I've had my stuff there for a while, and I run ALEC from a website I created there. I kinda know some of the kinks and quirks of making things work.
I have a personal secondary archive on LJ and I keep all of my stories on my own hard drive as well. I'll probably look at AOO also, but just put all of my current work on MPTT for the time being since right now all I'm writing is gen. (I suspect that won't last, and then I'll be looking for a more varied home). My issue was getting a good secondary URL for my MEFA stories. That's now taken care of.
