The More I Write

Lately, I've noticed a strange little phenomenon with my writing. It seems that the more I write, the more the language gets away from me. I misspell words with more frequency, my grammar slips up, I misinterpret the meanings of words. Recently, a friend used the word meteorologist in an email and I intepreted the word to mean "someone who studies meteors," instead of a weather forecaster. I had a good laugh when it finally dawned on me, but it makes me wonder if other writers go through stages like this in their writing. Writers out there, have you experienced this? How about you other creative types? Any strange plateaus or slides down the mountain of your craft?
