I've been experimenting with using my phone to write on the way to work, with my new commute.

I say "no concrit please", but seriously if anyone knows how to tag properly on AO3 I would love to hear your thoughts. Someone on my reading list wrote an amazing post about it last year but I can't remember it enough to actually put into practice!

This is a bit of an experiment for me. I haven't tried writing something multi-chaptered before, but I like my idea - and I've outlined! - and my new commute gives me a nice chunk of writing time.

What exactly do you want to know about AO3 tags? I assume that's what you're asking?

Well, AO3 is notoriously loose on these things, so there is no policing of whatever you put there. But generally you want to put things that will make it easy for people to search on things they want to find, and/or exclude things they don't want to see, so most of what you've put in your tags would be better in the summary or author's notes, or left out entirely.

Also, the 'ronan and blue friendship' tag is already on your story via the 'Ronan Lynch & Blue Sargent', and 'background pairings - Freeform' is meaningless (as is stuff like 'so does adam'). I would keep the background pairings information in the tags, as that's the kind of thing people care about, though personally I hate the portmanteau names and would have spelled them out. 'Platonic friendships' (and 'unplatonic friendships') are useful for people who want to filter.

Certainly! I'd be honored and delighted. (I haven't read what you've written yet as I generally don't read WIPs until they are complete.)

You can reach me at, and I can handle any document format (I use LibreOffice). I am not so good with GoogleDocs but if that's all you've got it's okay.

I may have intermittent availability during the next two months.

No problem with .rtf format!

Backpacking this weekend if I can shake my cold, San Francisco next week around the weekend, four week roadtrip around western Canada, and then whitewater rafting for a week. The last is the only one where I won't have any internet access at all.

Got your chapters, did the first, will try to get the second done tonight but might not get this stuff back to you until Monday.

Rafting is one of my...hobbies? Activities? Sports? My husband and I each own a small one-person oar-rigged raft. We actually went today on our local river, and will be doing some more this weekend on a nearby river we've never been to.

The August trip is in northwest Colorado and northeast Utah. I've done it before but not on my own raft. It should be a lot of fun, going with a bunch of friends that we've done other raft and mountain bike and backpacking trips with!
