I'd prefer that the story is not submitted within a link. However, using Notepad is a good way to write your story if you are on Windows. The BB Code

Simply cut/paste your story in from Notepad and if it goes over your character limit, all you need do is trim to a convenient sentence and stick in a
'continued'. The rest of the story can then be put into consecutive posts.
Yes, I understand that. I am quite able to make a lengthly post under a character restriction. What I meant was, the actual copying and pasting of a
text within a Word document into a thread on a forum such as this destroys
the intended formatting of the text. You can't paragraph correctly,
and the entire structure of the work is immediately compromised. It becomes grotesque, and troublesome to read.
I was asking if I may upload the original Microsoft word document that I wrote with, then link to it within the MSDWC thread (with an explanation of
my reasoning for doing so). If this is not permitted, then may I provide a direct download link to the original document along with the edited forum
version; so people can read it properly, as intended by the author?
My apologies if this was not already clear.
