5 Tips on Proofing

In the past have made more mistakes with proofing than I can name. So I thought for those who would rather try and do it themselves, I have put together the following editing and writing tips that will help your proofreading skills and help you find the errors in your text/article/script:

  1. Edit a hard copy. When you look at your computer screen or read off a cell phone for too long, you will often make common grammatical errors. Therefore, editing from a printed copy is a proofreading technique that allows you to see misspellings and punctuation errors. A printout is also less strenuous on your eyes.
  2. Double-check for homonyms. Homophones are words that sound alike but have different meanings and spellings. Sometimes it can be easy to make this mistake and mix up certain words – Think – Their – There- They’re!
  3. Watch for punctuation errors. Aside from misspelt words, you should pay attention to misplaced apostrophes, commas, and other punctuation marks. Also include endings to your parentheses and quotation marks, a simple mistake to make.
  4. Read aloud. Reading aloud can help you spot places for better word choice or improving sentence structure, such as run-ons and fragments. Hearing the text you have written, read by yourself or someone else, gives you a new outlook.
  5. Take a break. Walk away from your writing and come back to it later with fresh eyes. You will then improve your ability to spot spelling mistakes and other errors.
