Uh-oh...

My post is too large to post to 12dayschristmas - given that it's only day four I can see this being a significant problem. Is it better to cut it down into multiple posts (god knows how many posts I'd need for day twelve) or post to an external site and link? Or can I think to my own LJ? Any ideas?

I think if it's too long for 12 days, it'll be too long for your LJ? I've tended to post multiple posts to cover days, and my experience is that people are more likely to read if they don't click away from LJ - but an external site might be easier.

Thanks - I don't have any external sites so I will split it and reassess for future posts. If you've done multiple posts then hopefully it should be okay :)

I've done both - sometimes linking to AO3, sometimes doing multiple posts. I think whichever seems easiest for you! If it's the MT/BtVS one which is the longest then I see no harm in hosting that as a separate long fic elsewhere.

I too think if you can't post on 12days you can't post it all in one on your own LJ either.

Thanks - I don't have any external sites and it would seem AO3 requires an invite (or at least to wait for an invite). I will split it for today and reassess what I'm going to do - it may, as you wrote, be easier to keep most on 12days but just put the BtVS/MT externally. I will have a look.

I have an AO3 account so I can probably get you an invite (I've not done it before) but you may not want to bother for just this one time?
