Google Doc to Ao3

I recently discovered an easy way to transfer your google doc stuff to ao3. Copying and pasting never seems to work, as the code gets all messed up, and I have to go in and manually separate the paragraphs. I can't imagine how much that would suck if I wrote really long fic.
  1. After you've finished writing your fic in google documents, click "Add-ons > Get Add-ons".
  2. Type in "html", without quotations.
  3. You should see something that's called GD2md-html. Click +FREE
  4. Mine asked me to choose an account to associate this add-on with, so just select whatever email works best for you.
  5. Click "Add-ons > GD2md-html > Convert."
  6. A little side window pops up. Hit the blue HTML button. It'll say "Converting" and something like, "Your output will appear here."
  7. Copy and paste the output into ao3. I recommend hitting "preview" to make sure everything looks good to you, because I am paranoid and have social anxiety, so looking like an idiot in front of people terrifies me.
  8. Post.
  9. ???
  10. Profit.
I've used it twice now and both times its worked well for me. But I also write really short stuff, so *shrug*
