Beware Of The Dreaded Mistake
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Whether you have recently discovered online publishing or you have been doing this work for quite some time, you likely love what you do. You love being able to work when and where you want to, and you love being able to choose your own topics for articles. Each day, you check your favorite sites for ideas, and then you write articles inspired by these ideas. You organize your thoughts, and then you compose an article.

As you write, many exciting thoughts go through your head. You imagine earning enough money to pay your bills, for example. You also imagine receiving calls to tour the country to speak at schools. Finally, you picture yourself with millions of Twitter followers. Your excitement makes you type faster. You might even turn on some music to get into the rhythm of your writing. You have so many thoughts that you are eager to share with your readers, and you want to get them out while they are fresh in your mind. You continue typing as the music plays in the background. When you have finished typing your article, you proofread it and hit Submit. Then you smile to yourself in satisfaction as you imagine how your life is about to change.

The next morning, you wake up, check your email, and discover that your article has been approved. It can now be posted to the social networks. Wanting to be professional, you click the link to your article that is provided in the email. Reading your article, you discover that you made some mistakes. There are typographical errors, places where you repeated yourself, and parts of the article that could have been worded better. You are also horrified to learn that many people have already seen these mistakes.

Perhaps you can relate to a situation like this. Mistakes happen. They are part of being human. If you write a book or publish work in a newspaper, your mistakes cannot be fixed. They are there, and many readers will see them. Online, however, mistakes can be fixed. You can use the Edit feature on the site, edit your work, and then resubmit it. Your published work will then be updated with the corrections that you made.

Work is rarely published exactly as it was originally written. Sentences may be reworded, paragraphs may be rearranged, and articles may even be rewritten. Do not be afraid to make use of the Edit feature on a site. Editing your work will make it better, and better work should increase your readership. I hope that this article helps you to avoid embarrassing mistakes so that you can achieve success in the writing field.
