An archive is a place on the web that stores
stories so that they are more easily accessible to readers, they are usually
indexed by Author and Title with additional indexes and searches available
at different archives.
Why have your story archived?
Having your story archived will help you reach
a larger audience, simply because it will be available longer, for that
person that discovers Highlander for the first time a year or so after
you post your story. Also having your story archived helps insure
that it will not get lost in a Hard Drive crash, something you never think
will happen until it does...
Where can you have your story archived?
There are several archives for you to have your
story archived at, some of which are specialised archives that deal only
with Richie or slash stories.
