I've come across three-ish little things during my time here which could help some authors help their readers. #1 Tags are your friend, while the basic #Destiny is enough to get your story out there it is hardly enough to help readers locate the continuation of the story; however a special tag [u]unique[/u] to your story alleviates the issue. #1.5 Some authors (such as myself) make use of a Table of Contents thread (not technically a ToC but whatever) to organize and compile the parts of their stories in a single thread via links. #2 If you post the story directly in the thread (as in not a google/sky/one drive doc) and it is too large to fit within the OP (original post) then consider making the thread a question one instead and selecting the next part (a comment) as the answer; this will keep it directly below the OP if someone responds to that instead of the actual end of the chapter (you can continue to reply to the selected comment if the story still proves to be lengthy). #3 Not necessarily as important as the others but could help readers with your story: if you are posting a link to a document be aware that PDFs are displayed on a full-page-by-full-page format on the mobile app (meaning a large amount of zooming and/or scrolling may be required) and that the small arrow to advance to the next page is located directly beneath the reader's avatar profile link (can confirm on Google drive, iPad). I hope these help and I am willing to elaborate on anything concerning the tips above.
