    When you write an article, do you change keywords as you write to avoid repetition, or at the end?

    It could overstuff an article providing information on a particular topic.

    I like to do it at the end so it doesn't interrupt my flow.

    On Hubpages I don't think about it at all, I just write however I would write.  On InfoBarrel, where I also publish things, you have to think about it as their software well let you know if you've used a word or phrase too many times, and they won't let you publish a page if you've over used a word or phrase.

    I edit for repeated words at the end - meaning after I'm finished writing. I find that afterwards I have a better understanding of the ideas I'm trying to portray. It's too distracting for me to think about it while I write.

    Writing is about engaging the reader. Always scan your article for repetition. You don't want to sound like that broken record, and if key words are repeated throughout, the target audience will not be engaged.
