Have you ever published a hub before it was ready?


I have a habit of publishing my work before it has been carefully proofed. Does anyone else do this?

    teaches, I think I need to let a hub sit unpublished for at least a week. It is amazing how many times I will find better ways to communicate a thought and/or find errors when I go back for a reread. Helps to know I am not alone. :)

    So,you understand my dilemma too.:) To publish or not to publish, this is the question.:) I have 2 unpublished hubs sitting right now. I've only had a few experiences when it all came together easy. The most amazing was A co-written series.

    You did this only once? Oh, you are good! I know what you mean about hoping no one else sees it before it is completed. Thanks!

    I am impatient too. I get so excited about the topic that I can hardly wait to get it published. When I find errors after publishing I think; "When will you learn!"

    I can relate. Most of the time when I am writing, I just dump it out as it comes. I write furiously in order to keep up with my thoughts. I do proof before publishing, but I find I need time to reread and look at it several times with fresh eyes.
