So, I accidentally made one work called Untitled related to another novel called Untitled . . . and I don't know how to fix it. One's a realistic mystery and the other is a fantasy-slash-horror and they're nothing alike, hence I need it fixed quickly. I need them to each be one novel, without having to rewrite both . . . not that I know how to do that, either.

Halp?

No worries, the solution is very simple, you just need to give one of the works a title! They've linked themselved together because of how similar the names are so once you re-title one they should automatically seperate and if not, I can do it for you. But they need different names to distinguish between them.

If it's already added to your novel, I'm not sure it's possible to remove them. I've tried to remove chapters repeatedly and it doesn't stick.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.

:C Hm. Well. Any suggestions for what to do? Ask for it to be deleted and re-post it?

We don't delete first posts of threads to preserve reviews.

You could combine the novels, saying that one title is one novel and the other title is another. Or, you repost the chapters as another novel to have them all together. In that case, you'd just have the currently-misplaced chapter retitled "misplaced" or "deleted" to stop people from clicking on it.

If you need to repost that other chapter, let me know and I'll donate the points so you'll not be out 200 for posting.
