How do I link the story.
I think there are a couple of ways, but here's how I usually do it...
Write your story and post it in a "new topic" thread in the Short Stories Forum HERE
(You may need to make more posts before starting a NewTopic thread... maybe DTOM or a mod could clarify?? I think it used to be 20 posts before making
a new thread??)
Open your story post and right click on the "link" pin (3rd icon from the right at the top of your story post) then choose "Copy Link Location" from
the pop up menu. (As implied... that copies the story post link location! You'll need that later.)
Come back to this thread and start a new reply post.
In your reply, mention that this is your story contest entry and whether you already have ATS writer status or not, and then click on the "Insert a
link to a page or site" icon (the one which looks like an arrow coming diagonally up out of a square, near the middle of the row of in-reply icons at
the top of your reply window).
It will then ask what name you want to give your link - insert the name of your story, "My Entry" or whatever you choose then click on "OK".
It will then ask for the URL to your story post link, that's when you right-click and paste your link into the window and click OK again (to insert
your previously copied story post link).
Hit the "Reply" button to post your reply, and that should be it done!
(It sounds complicated, but is quite easy once you get the hang of it! Maybe leave this window open whilst working on your reply in a separate window?
That way you can jump back and check each step as you do it!)
