Not that I'm paranoid or anything, but I sort of accidentally, spontaneously formatted all my stories as text-only, zipped them, and uploaded them to Megaupload. You know. Because that's what ordinary people do:

I will also, in the spirit of being perfectly un-worried about story access, mention that I continue to be on Archive of Our Own as favicondmarley.

And, of course, everything is still on Dreamwidth and (for this five minutes anyway) Livejournal:

Dorothy Marley's Fanfiction Index on Dreamwidth

Dorothy Marley's Fanfiction Index on Livejournal

In all seriousness, I do expect Livejournal to continue to be around, and I'm rooting for them in their fight against the various DDoS attacks they've sustained the last couple of weeks. It's just that when a service where one has hosted one's fiction for several years goes in and out because of forces outside one's own control, one begins to think about backups. And about zipping stories as text files and uploading them Megaupload, just because.

Okay, so I'm sort of caught up with all my immediate things-I-want-to-be-caught-up-on. I have hit my NaNoWriMo goal for today (35,106 words!), and if I just write a little more than 1,000 words a day I'll get it done.

I have also uploaded all my stories to Archive of Our Own. So far, I'm pretty happy with it. I didn't have any technical problems getting my stories on there, and I like most of the tagging and labeling features. There are couple of things that I suspect still need to be refined a bit, notably what, exactly, the various warning options are supposed to mean, but on the whole what's there is workable.

So long, Usenet formatting, I shall miss you )

Also, why the case sensitive option is your friend )

My thoughts on AO3 tagging )
