I don't seem to notice the spelling mistakes/grammatical errors until after posted. Fortunately, can edit hubs. I don't beat myself up about things I might have done wrong, or else I wouldn't write at all.

A few months ago I joined a new writers group. Interestingly, some of the members are very knowledgeable about what it takes to write a story but have difficulty in following through with their own writing (or, so...
I would just like to know if I am the only one who this happens to: when i write, as I am writing a novel at the moment, I often find that my self esteem and belief in the skill of my writing goes down very...
