You should check this out!

Alright--so over on "Read-Write-Blog" I just did a post on proofreading.  Because proofreading is soooooo important.  And I admit, I don't always proofread everything I write, but I proofread most of it....  So, I thought I'd share this one across the blogs!


Here's the link: http://readwriteblogprof.blogspot.com/2011/06/why-proofread.html


And here's a sneak peek at one of the tips I include:

  • First, look at sense and completeness.  
    • So, what does that mean?  In your first reading, look for omissions--missing letters, words, sentences, paragraphs, etc.  Then, review the draft for consistent format.
Want more? I hope so! You'll need to go over there and read the post!

And thanks to my good friend LaRita for both allowing me to sit in on her Proofreading seminar, and for allowing me to borrow (steal) some of her ideas! 



Thanks!
