I tried to go back and edit Chapter II (grammatical issues and Asher's atrocious Cockney accent, which I've since dropped) and got an error message -- apparently the post was too large? LiveJournal defeats me. So, grammatical mistakes and Asher's bad accent still stand. Any advice? I would split that chapter up, but I posted it two years ago (!) and I don't want to mess up the chronological continuity of the posts as they appear in my journal, or lose the comments.

Damn you, Livejournal. Damn you to to the ninth circle of blogging platform hell.

ETA: Fixed!

I don't quite get how it is now too large when it posted before - unless you added quite a bit? I wonder if LJ is just hiccuping randomly and it will be fine next time...

One solution might be to keep the original post so that you keep everyone's comments but to cut a chunk off the end so it fits and post it into an new entry called 2b or something which your original post then links to. It's a bit of a clunky solution but if there is no better plan it would at least allow you to edit, save the original comments and keep something like the original chapter sequences.

SUCCESS! I tried the same edits for the dozenth time and LiveJournal gave in. Thanks for the advice!

Just discovered The Golden Bird. It is fantastic. I especially like Luca's voice. Please tell me you're planning to write more of it!

Thank you so much! I'm relieved you like Luca's voice, as it's been particularly tricky for me to get right. I am absolutely going to write more. In fact, I just posted a new chapter!
