Deleting a story or story part

If you’ve created a new story part by accident or if you’re sure that you no longer want a story part anymore, you have the option to delete it. You can delete both drafts and published parts, as well as an entire story.

Be absolutely sure that you want to delete a story part, as there is no way to restore it once it’s been deleted. If you delete a story part, this will also delete all of the reads and votes of this part from your total amount of reads/votes. 

Instead of deleting a part, you also have the option of unpublishing it, and the story part will be reverted back to a draft, so only you can see it.
