Do you save your articles and then publish them, or publish them as soon as you

    Do you save your articles and then publish them, or publish them as soon as you finish writing them?

    Personally I just upload my content immediately after finishing writing about it and doing a quick edit once or twice. Does anyone write articles and then hold on to them until a later date?

    Usually I make first a points, then rough draft and then final draft, this takes some time week some time two days before I upload them.

    As soon as I have proof read my article I will publish it. After it is up and running I may go back several times and fine tune it. I can't imagine how confusing it would be to publish multiple stories at the same time, plus I don't see any benefit in it. I guess it all comes down to what works best for the writer.

    I have and published both in the same day. I didn't think it was possible. Writing takes effort. But, I have learned that to write better you must read more. I read more hubs than I write!

    I usually write them and publish them.  In hubs where I need additional research, I save them, edit the hub and publish.  Then I start hubs with titles that I intend to write on and save them so that I don't forget that there are hubs that I want to write.

    I usually let them sit at least overnight before my final proofing. Sometimes it's easier to find errors if you get a little distance from it first.

    I write most of my Hubs over a period of time, saving the unfinished work on my computer. Adding to them, reworking what I wrote, proofreading, researching and adding additional information. Sometimes even removing sections that I feel are not contributing to the understanding of the article. 

    Then when I feel it's ready, I upload the text into individual text capsules, add images where appropriate, and play around with the formatting to make it easy on the eye, so to speak.

    I think what you were asking, though, is if we upload and save on HubPages before publishing. I used to upload and publish in one session. But lately, when I'm finished as I explained above, I upload and still leave it sit before publishing. That way I give it one last go-over before I pull the trigger.

    It turns out that every time I proofread I end up modifying something. So I'm never in a rush to just write and publish.

    I publish as soon as I finish writing and editing the article. There are times after publishing that I make additional edits.
