Dumb Swap of Joy Q

I am almost finished with my gift. It needs editing.

Where do I post it? Last year there was something on AO3 & the author was hidden until the big reveal by the mods but I can't find that.

I still haven't mastered the art of posting things "under the cut" here on LJ so I don't want to overwhelm anybody who reads via smart phone by plastering a wall of words.

I think that you could post it to AO3, and then do a short post here linking to it. I don't believe there's an AO3 page for the overall effort this year- mods correct me if I'm wrong on that, please.

Cutting it easy, just put lj-cut between < and > if you want to include your story name in the cut lj-cut text="say something snappy" goes between < and > once again. Though that only works on the HTML portion. (If you use raw html in your story, that is the tab you want to post under.)

For the visual editor. I put together a little visual tutorial:

The buttons are also available on the HTML tab.

**P.S. There is a collection to post it under, but it has never been a secret exchange. Not even last year. If you want to post anon and stay anon I suggest using http://archiveofourown.org/collections/anon_fic or http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Anonymous_Fics and ask Haldoor or Kaige to post a link to the story. I am not sure about the first link, but I know you do retain ownership of your story in the second collection. The collection for the exchange is: 1_Million_Swap_of_Joy it is NOT anonymous.

I realized I did 2 exchanges last year. One had the big reveal. This one did not.

Hey, it's all good! Hopefully the advice Fairy & Dreamy have given you is helpful - posting to AO3 and then linking here is probably the easiest way, but if you're not sure on linking or anything else, PM me or Kaige and we'll help you out!

No, quite right, SoJ is not anonymous! ;-)
