I click on the link and I get an error message about "Unable to locate story with id of 3706106." I go to FFN and try to click on it directly from the Ghostbusters section or your profile, and I get the same error. ...stupid ffn...
How infuriating. As Farah will attest, it was fine earlier, since which time I've been in to corrent some typos I found afterwards. But that wouldn't account for all the subsequent problems I had.
I played around in ff.net a bit. Then I thought, hang on, this is stupid - I'll just delete the story and upload it again. I still had the document in the "Documents" bit, because it's apparently taken to not deleting them after they're published. I went through the whole process again... and got the same error message. So I thought, fine, I'll upload a brand new document. Well, to cut a long story short, the same thing happens no matter what I do.
Thank goodness for Deviantart. The full title doesn't fit in the title field, but so what? The important thing is that the story is there - actually there - and as I type this I haven't yet fixed the link in my original message, but I will do so immediately I've posted this - so if you click up there, you will connect to the story (unless DA is having one of its bad days, in which case it'll be back in an hour or two).
I will say that coding all of it to keep the formatting was a pain in the @$$ and no mistake, so please... like it.
well, I got a chance to read it, and it was short but good. Where did you get the stages from? They were very funny, are they just for Kylie or do you think they apply to everyone? I got a Bridget Jones vibe from this, probably the format, and the British wording in places.
Those are just for Kylie, because every pregnancy is different, both emotionally and physically. I guess I got them just by using my imagination. They do correspond a little bit with the actual stages of pregnancy, particularly the first three. It's difficult to know exactly how a character would react just by watching her eighteen-year-old self on a cartoon, but I took a stab at it.
Bridget Jones is very good as a piece of mindless humour, but I have to say I hope this - and, come to that, anything I write - goes a little bit deeper than that.
Incidentally, this morning I got no less than four e-mails reminding me that I'd submitted a new story to ffn, so I guess that means I tried to upload it three times after the original went belly-up. I clicked on one of the links to see what it said, expecting to see the same error message, and I did. But it's far less irritating when that happens and you know the story to have been deleted, rather than recently uploaded.
Weird. Apparently this was a bug on ffn, but they reckoned they got it fixed on August 5th. Not for me, I'm afraid - but I seem to have managed it now. I uploaded a new story earlier today that had the same problem, but - fingers crossed - that now seems to have fixed itself without me having to delete and re-upload it.
