Writers who write for publication should know how
to proofread, so that he may be able to do this
work quickly and accurately. After all, you don’t
want to submit copy that is loaded with typos,
and other errors, do you?
Errors are most readily detected if a card is used
to cover all lines except the one that is being
corrected. The card is moved down from line to
line as each is read and corrected. By having only
one line in sight and by examining every word,
the writer or proofreader can more readily
catch any errors.
Always proofread the copy word by word. It’s easy
to miss errors when reading groups of words.
Well this was a short one.
