    I have a confession to make and an issue with the site to talk about.

    On Thursday 14th I posted chapters of two stories and only afterward noticed mistakes so I deleted them and only after that did I realise I should have unpublished them not deleted so I lost theose posted chapters and all the stuff in the drafts for two whole stories.

    I don't know what I was doing I know how to publish or unpublish chapters, I also know how to delete stories completely.

    It was a huge f**k up on my part, then to make matters worse in a fit of angry stupidity I deactivated my account, and for those who don't know if you do that you have seven days to reactivate or it gets automatically permanently deleted.

    I quickly realised I didn't want to lose my account and all the published and draft stuff I have on here so I tried to get in and reactivate it only I couldn't log in. I tried repeatedly but nothing was happening so I tried contacting movellas onsite via the contact us in Help.

    I waited until the next day for a reply but nothing, so on Friday I sent an email got a response that said someone will try to respond within 24 Hours, that meant going into the weekend so I left it until Monday to check back in my email inbox, several times but there nothing.

    Left it until Tuesday and still nothing so I contacted them and emailed them again then out of desperation knowing I had just two days left until my account would be gone I tried changing my password again even though it hadn't worked when I tried it on Thursday and Friday and for whatever reason this time it did work.

    I was able to log back in and at the click of one button I was able to reactivate and save my account. Now bear with me I'm still not done, but here's why I am annoyed at the site. Yes the deletions and deactivation is my fault probably the password resets I was probably doing something wrong, but whatever I waas doing wrong I got no help from movellas as I never did and still haven't received a reply to any message or email I sent asking for help despite two standard reply emails telling me someone would be in contact within 24 hours.

    I'd probably still be waiting and it's likely if I hadn't tried the password reset my account would have been deleted because they didn't reply in time.

    Anyway ranty thing over, I just had to get that off my chest.

    Annoying when you delete stuff and it's gone. I always use word to type in and then copy the words to Movellas, then I always have control over my words. It's a lesson I learnt years ago when an important school project went down on a laptop. Now I back up in at least one place.

    The reinstatement of accounts is usually straightforward and works well (Yeah I've quit more than once). The response from Movellas wasn't good though. I know they aren't having a lot of luck with emails at the moment due to spam in the email boxes which fills up faster than they can empty them but they should have a plan by now to deal with urgent enquiries. If you have problems again try to either tag @[Adison] into your post or email them (adison@movellas.com). Although haven't had a reply for a few weeks on that address so I'm not sure if that's getting the same problems.

    Hopefully the problems will get sorted, but even me with my eternal optimism is getting frustrated. I take the fact that we're getting new exciting competitions as a good sign. Hopefully they'll even get around to announcing the winners of the competitions that have gone soon :)

    I am maybe a bit more annoyed at myself for deleting rather than just unpublishing those specific chapters which rather than the entire story draft chapters and cover, than the staff not being any help. I mean if I hadn't done that I wouldn't have deactivated in an angry moment and wouldn't have needed their help to reactivate, even then if I knew what I was doing wrong with the password reset I wouldn't have had to contact the site so it really is all my fault I got in that mess.

    That being said I do feel that my account could have been gone completely because no one responded to my emails and messages is poor so thanks for providing contact and email for adison I might use them in future if I need to contact movellas staff. having the name of an actual person to send it to could be really helpful.

    We all do things on impulse, it just sucks at times when it comes back to bite us. Hopefully the site will solve it's spam problems.

    As I begin thinking about restarting writing my Batman story, I have changed the cover to this.
    I feel it will be better suited to the Batman Beginning story I want to write.

    Thanks I wish I could say yeah I drew it but google image search was my friend for this.

    It is page art for a Batman graphic novel. but it is dark and brooding and hop[efully I can make the story live up to it when I start it again.

    Just noticed there was no cover for my Justice League story.

    I chose one so I don't know what happened why it didn't show when I published the first chapter.

    Anyway here is the cover originally chosen that has posted properly this time.

    A new mumble about Old Stuff

    I know I should be more focused on the 14 stories I already have published to continue writing, but I'm not as you can tell by the fact I'm adding two more.

    Just republished the first chapters of my Wonder Woman and Justice League fan fiction stories.

    I've tinkered with bits and in some cases rewritten parts of the first chapters that I'd previously posted and then neglected until I finally unpublished them but I now have more idea what the story's are about.

    Although I already had a criminally ignored (by me) Batman story, I now have Superman and Wonder Woman stories I don't think they will be connected to the Justice League story or to each other. I think it will be easier for me to keep them separate.

    If you follow me and see a notification of two new stories published, ignore them as I have just unpublished them.

    Oh holy sh*t I'm stupid, I republish opening chapters for stories i'm republishing and then I discover mistakes that need fixing so I decide to unpublish them, only I didn't do that instead I've stupidly accidentally because I'm a F***ing Moron deleted both of them.

    I wanted to fix them then repost them but I can't do that now because I am fu***ng Dumb. I'm honestly so F****ng annoyed with myself for doing something so mind-numbingly stupid I'm hitting the keys on the keyboard so hard as I type this because I am angry and I need to punch something.
    AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
