What do you think?

I need some opinions here, for something I've been considering for a while. Fanfic-related. Well, writing-related, not story-related.


If you've ever seen my AO3 or ffnet lists, you might notice that I have three collections of short stories - Calling the Doctor, A Teacher and a Housemaid, and Short Fiction. This is the way I created them on ffnet, because ffnet is really rather limited, and I followed suit on AO3. However, what I really should have done on AO3 is publish all of the stories separately and put them into series.

So, the question is, should I rearrange my AO3 archive and republish all the stories separately and put them into series the way they probably should have been?

Advantages:

  • My archive will be better organized.
  • It will display a better indication of how much I've actually written. This will add probably two pages onto my list.
  • People will be better able to give feedback to individual stories. Right now, if you've kudoed one, you can never kudo again.
  • I think that few people read the individual stories in the collections, because they look just like chapter updates.
  • Future stories will be organized correctly.
  • I actually write a lot of Martha, but you can't tell because they're all under one title.


Disadvantages:

  • It's already set up this way. It's a lot of work to change it up.
  • People who know my work might get confused about all the changes. (Granted, that's a tiny number of people.)
  • I'll lose all of the comments that already exist on these stories.
  • If I can't get the publishing dates set up correctly, my "recent" list will be spammed with old stuff.
  • I'm afraid of change. :)
