Writing Tip: 107#

Read your work aloud.


You’ll notice more mistakes that way.


Why Proof-readers are amazing

So you have finished manuscript edited it to the point of insanity and you’re ready to send it off to an editor.


Let me tell you something. you have read your own writing, over and over again in the same formet and the same font. You are not seeing your own writing properly. You are just reading what you want to see there rather than what is.

So, can you guess how many mistakes you have in that prefect draft of yours?


This is why Proof readers are a God send. They can literally be anyone who understand what a sentence is, which also means that they are free to hire. And we all love free things. They can be friends, family, random strangers that you bribe with food just as long as you get as many as possible.

This will stop you having to have an overhaul edit and pay out extra money to an editor.
