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?
Yes i do this i am terrible at grammar. Sometimes i will just get into writing and forget all about it lol. Then without thinking publish and within 5 minutes im back editing trying to find my mistakes and spelling commas errors so your not alone .
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.
Yes, because I am impatient to put it out there and fail to really take the time to polish. I am working on trying to be much better at reworking my drafts and really paying attention to what I am trying to convey.
I think I spend too much time proofing my hubs. Even so, I find errors after I have sent them through. Sometimes I go back and read them and see where I can improve the grammar and language. I think we all tend to experience this in some way.
My feeling is it's never ready. Like you and Teaches, I spend too much time proofing and then letting hubs sit aside, and yet months after publishing I still come across anything from typos to entire excerpts that demand reworking. Of course some hubs are readier than others to be published when I hit "publish now."
Unfortunately, that button sits frightfully close to the "save unpublished" button. I mistook the one for the other on my first hub. Though I caught myself immediately and unpublished it, I didn't come back to it and start writing others for another 7 months. Now my stats show have a long flat zone, with the good stuff crammed into the far right end of the chart.
In all, I must hit "save unpublished" about 20 times more often than I do "publish now."
Uh yes! I did this once and then I had to quickly add in the photos. I hoped that no one would read the hub before I was able to do so...
