Hi!
Sadly this is always the worst part of this event for me. Even after reading this post (see link below),I cannot do it correctly. Technology is not my friend. Good luck.

Hi PennyJM -

I'm working on the same problem.  Here's what I've come up with so far.  You need to put your story in Google Docs or some other sharing platform.  Then you should get a hyperlink.  But in order to use it in your Signature (under Member Control Panel), you need to go to http://bit.ly to create a shorter link.

The whole procedure is spelled out in the FAQ section.

Good luck!  I'm in the same boat.

Or, in summary
1. Create a doc in Google docs, then get the sharable URL link from it

2. Create a post in the Forum, and get the URL to that post
2a. Shorten the Forum post link in http://bit.ly or http://tiny.cc

3. Then, to create a link in your signature, you'll need to edit your User Profile in the forum.
3a. Way down at the bottom of your user profile is a place to enter the URL in your signature
3b. Your signature will need to look like this
[ URL= http: // bit.ly/string-of-letters] The Name of Your Story [ /URL ]
but of course without the extra spaces!
3c. Use the Preview feature of the signature to make sure it looks right.

4. Save your profile.

Go back and check a few of your posts. You should see the signature on them automatically.
