Can't Add a New Part or Continue Writing My Story

If you are having trouble adding a new part, editing your work, or continuing your story, it could be due to a number of reasons. Please click below to find out more.

Tag Limit

There is a limit to the number of tags you can have on your story. Users are allowed to add a maximum of 25 tags to their stories. This includes the Category tag e.g. Romance, Fanfiction, etc. If your story exceeds this tag limit, you will not be able to edit your work or add a new part until you remove the extra tags.

Part Limit

There is a maximum number of parts you can add to your story which is 200 parts. You will not be able to write any more parts once you've reached this limit. If your story is currently over 200 parts we recommend that you stop creating parts to that story as it can cause various errors to occur in the future.

Network or Server Connection Error

  1. Please turn your internet connection off and on again, or connect to another network then try again
  2. Please check our Status Page for updates on whether Wattpad is working. If we are experiencing server-related problems, this could affect your ability to access your works.
