Making links to new pages before the page is made - connection fails

I have a style of editing wikis that I picked up very long ago.  I am editing an existing page and decide that there should be another page supporting it.  I make a link to the page in the page I am editing and continue to work on the current page.

Then, I publish the current page and click the link.  It brings me to the new page, blank, with a title, as I expect. I edit the new page.  I attempt to publish but the system tells me there is a timeout, and that my changes can't be saved.

What am I doing wrong?

It's interesting that you're doing this in Confluence Cloud, because I can't even work out how to do this in the new editor, even though it used to be a perfectly valid way of working in the old editor.

I am typing away and have an idea for a title of a new page.  So I type the [New Title] in a box.  That makes a missing link in the current page.  When I am ready to create, I click on the missing link.  It brings me to the new page, that I can now not save.

Yes, that used to be [The Wiki Way].  I don't know why you'd want to change it.
