I was just wondering what the reason was for a post only being allowed to have a certain amount of words (like I think a 100,000?) because I am currently posting my own original story in Books and Other Writings and sometimes I can get rather long chapters but I have to divide them up in two different posts for this reason. Not like that isn't too difficult to do, I was just wondering what the reason was.

Just a suggestion. Post the content of your story on a blog site, then link to it from here. There are plenty of free solutions for blogs, and you won't run into a size limit. Though, if your story is rather long I would also suggest doing multiple posts, such as a do each chapter as its own post.

Yeah I do multiple posts for each chapter but sometimes they get pretty long and I'm on chapter twelve right now and so that would be rather difficult just stopping posting them now and post the link to the rest of it instead, but I guess it's something that I could consider though.

The thing about posting things online, many people are not going to dive into a really long post. It is usually better to break it up into smaller sections so it is easier to digest. Sure, that may end up meaning you have a lot more posts, but if it is interesting then you will find people will stick around to read more of it.

I think the 10,000 character limit is to discourage excessively long posting. This is a discussion site after all, not a blog. So in a way it's not really suited to what you're trying to do.

But as Knotical suggested, you could maybe break up the chapters into multiple posts for easier reading. Or post links to the full chapters,l but post the first few paragraphs here as a teaser.
