So I’ve revived the Great Fire and Ice Fic Exchange of Song and Legend after almost three years of it not happening. The amount of work involved is kind of mind-numbing, but I can handle it all… except for ONE THING, which may the one that drives me completely nuts.
You see, they always had it on LJ, so that’s where I had to have it this year. (Livejournal is so prehistoric that it may actually become a hipster thing, but that’s another issue.) After this, the exchange is never ever ever ever going to be there again. And here’s the problem at hand. Everyone sends their writing to me; I cut and paste and post it on LJ as separate posts. HOWEVER… about half of the fics are coming through fine. BUT about half of them looked good in word/odt but become completely
when pasted in LJ.
If the files were originally in html, they’re always fine, but very few authors have done this.
Please, PLEASE, if anybody knows how to fix this, PLEASE tell me. I don’t know if I can take any more. I’ve had to go through each one of those fics and hand-reformat it by pressing enter twice after the end of each paragraph-- I can’t find any other way. (Selecting all the text and then auto-increasing space above and/or below each paragraph has no effect at all.)
HELP!!! While any of my mind is still left!!!
