Do you normally take a deep breath after hitting the 'Publish now' option?
Writing involves full involvement, research, concentration, as all of you know obviously because this is a community of great writers. How does it feel, when you have finished writing and are about to hit the 'publish' button?
It is a very nice feeling. When your heart & mind waiting how will the world receive your hub.
Yes, it is a weird feeling. It is a mixture of relief, nerves and also wonder as to how the hub will perform. It is a nice feeling for sure, publishing a hub, but strangely a little stressful too.
100%, I had that feel a few minutes above too when I published my first video hub. It is a great feeling. I enjoyed. The subsequent hours are of anxiety. Whether it will be featured or not is the reason for that feel. Finally when a positive confirmation is received from HP, I am thrilled. Hubbing is 100% exciting.
I absolutely love that feeling of accomplishment! I'm like slapping my hand on my desk and saying "Yes!" LOL.
I love, when I accomplish a good hub. I like to send it into the universe and see what happens. You never know the next one you write could go viral. We can only hope but know the more you write the better and easier they get.
Thanks suzzycue, for your response to the question!
I share the same feeling as yours. Lot of thinking, involvement, hard work goes into writing a good hub. And when the 'universe' accepts and appreciates, its a wonderful feeling.
I fret about missing errors and I read these hubs over and over several months later to fix any lingering mistake. I have found errors on writing I published over a year ago. The eye does not catch everything at first glance. Spelling and grammar software only alerts you of certain goofs. If you misspell a word making it a new word you will not be alerted. Corral and coral had me embarrassed to think I hadn't noticed. This hub explains what I'm talking about: http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/The-O … a-Seahorse and also synonyms will not show up on a spelling/grammar checker, so be careful. There are many of them. I goof these up often and I know better. So yes, I take a deep breath after I hit the Publish Now button.
Thanks Diana Lee, for answering the question! You are right, we might miss mistakes in the first glance. I clicked the link and read your interesting hub. And I get your point. Thanks for the 'edit' option, so that we can mend our mistakes.
yes, I do feel that way too. although , my profile score had risen but not for my newly published hubs.
Yes and I usually get quite nervous as well waiting to see how the hub will be received!
Yes. I take a deep breath and exhale a sigh of relief. I actually have a ritual when I'm about to publish a hub. When I feel the hub is ready to publish, I let it sit. I then go brew a cup of coffee, come back to my desk, hit the publish button, inhale, exhale, then sit back and relax. A nice cup of coffee is my little reward. I unwind from the newly published hub for a while before thinking of my next hub to write.
I usually take a deep breath before I type in the title of my Hub, then I don't breathe the whole time I'm typing. As I'm running out of oxygen, I notice that my creativity levels diminish and I begin to type more seriously. Once I hit the publish button, I then pass out and hopefully land somewhere on the floor that is void of any sharp objects. I then wake up hours later, only to realize that what I thought was the publish button, was actually the X button on my Notepad. Ha!
I take a deep breath because what I think is my great work isn't necessarily so and when I think "maybe", it's sometimes good. I just never know what to expect.

When I am working on a new hub, almost everytime I click the publish button (even though I've looked at the preview several times) I see something else about the layout that I want to alter.Question is - is it my own hubpages version of stage fright or do the hubs really look slightly different...

Would you rather publish a set of hubs at once or will you publish them one by one?If you have a set of hubs ready to be published, say 5-10 hubs drafted, not yet published.

I submitted my first hub for publication, and it is still saying that it is waiting for publication (published it yesterday). However, the two hubs I published after that were published like the moment I clicked the publish button! I'm really confused- how is the one taking so long to publish and...
